Syncing your iPad

Sync with Gmail:

Here’s what to do:

  1. Go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars and tap Add Account... under Accounts.

  2. Select Other, and then, Mail Account. DO NOT select Gmail.

  3. Use imap.gmail.com as incoming server and smtp.gmail.com as outgoing server. Put in your entire gmail address and password in both incoming and outgoing server settings.

  4. Go back to iPad home and start up the Mail app. Once it connects and downloads mail for the first time, go back to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Select the new mail account you just created, scroll down, and tap Advanced.

  5. Select Drafts Mailbox > On the Server > Drafts. Return to the Advanced view.

  6. Select Sent Mailbox > On the Server > Sent Mail. Return to the Advanced view.

  7. Select Deleted Mailbox > On the Server > Deleted Messages

  8. Back all the way out and hit Done.
