agreed - just discovered problem TODAY why will it not let me complete setup of gmail as my mail service.
mail create account = OK
select gmail = OK
select domain @gmail.com = OK
enter usernam and password = OK
click sign in = OK
select wireless home network = OK
every time reports 'could not sign in. try again.'
H E L P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how ridiculous
someone sadi to activate POP3 access IN gmail - done
Just started happening with me too on my C3-00.
There is a problem with my gmail and my outlook.com accounts.
NOVI and Hotmail are working but I don't really care about those accounds.
See my similar thread on "Email will not send on Nokia Email"...
I think a contract has expired somewhere in Nokia-land which was providing the connectivity to the outside world or they've had a major routing failure but it's very noticeable that it started happening on 1st April 2012 - which is when support contracts often run to.
I contacted them and I got a response (automated I think) saying "contact my email service provider" but it works just fine from everywhere else - and how come it worked fine on Saturday but was half-borken Sunday through my mobile (3 UK)?
