Does the new Apple vs. Google business fight have something to do with some iPhone and iPad users not being able to receive and send gmail with the gmail servers?
Very odd to have this major problem just a day after Apple said it won't load youTube on new iPhones and iPads.
Does apple want it's customs to drop gmail and use Mac email? That seems like dirty business practice if it's the case. Any reporting here?

I had this problem too when I went to my google account and activated "2-Step Authentication." When I activated that, it booted me out of all the apps that I use my google account from. Even from iPhone's mail app. So in return, I had to create specific passwords for ALL the applications I use my google acount from.
Maybe that's the problem?

Everything working great until 7:30am this morning. The only place I can't access my email is via the email application on the iPhone. I can access email via google apps on the iPhone and via my computer... just not the email application that comes with the iPhone.
This has happened to me before and the problem resolved itself, and I'm guessing that some time tonight my email will start working again... BUT It's very frustrating when it's impossible to get a clear answer to what the problem is.
If anyone gets a clear answer on how to fix, please post here

I hope they they resolve it soon. I have the same problem as others. One gmail account does not work on my iphone and ipod touch but the others are fine. I have tried all kinds of steps to fix it. It's definitely not something I can fix.

AT&T support says its a mobile email problem, maybe caused by an industry wide upgrade. support person has dealt with this same problem on iPhones, Android and Windows phones, too. Fixes are temporary so best to wait for mobile industry to resolve. Wonder why no media attention yet?

It's not a mobile email problem, it's a gmail imap server problem. I'm amazed the tech news sites haven't written anything about this yet (that I've seen).
I have my iPhone set up to use gmail as an Exchange server (ActiveSync), and I'm getting email fine on the phone.
I have Apple Mail on my Mac set up to use gmail using IMAP because ActiveSync isn't an option on the desktop. It's Apple Mail that has suddenly stopped working.
I really hope Google fixes this soon. My productivity is seriously hurt by this.
