Cannot get mail

The mail server "imap.gmail.com" is not responding. Verify that you have entered the correct account info in mail settings.

    Normally that is the "No wifi / internet" message. It isn't responding becasue wifi is not working.

    Go to: Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings .  You will need to reenter you wifi password. No other info is deleted. Then power cycle your router. Disconnecting the power cord and wait 20 seconds, then reconnect.

    1. From the Home screen, click the Home button twice.
    2. Tap and hold on the app.
    3. When it starts to jiggle, tap the to close it.
    4. Double-click the Home button and try opening the app again.


    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
