Customer Question
I bought a new...

I bought a new phone and wanted to add Gmail to it but I cant log in as nothing seems to work when I try to update my password. This PC that I am using logs in automatically so I cant see what password ***** using. I have spent a lot o f time trying to renew the pass word and when I get a code to to put in it still dosent work.

Technician's Assistant: Are you logged into your Gmail account on any other devices?

No I would like to have access on my new phone but cant because I dont have a password

Technician's Assistant: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?

The system had a security question option but didnt ask that question. The phone number and email that I am supposed to use tom reset are no longer available to me. I tried using my wifes email and got a code to put in (2 times) but still no go

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

No I just want keep the same account

Read Gmail messages on other email clients using POP

You can open your messages from Gmail in other mail clients that support POP, like Microsoft Outlook.

Step 1: Make sure POP is the best way to read your emails

IMAP and POP are both ways to read your Gmail messages in other email clients.

IMAP can be used across multiple devices. Emails are synced in real time.

POP can only be used for a single computer. Emails aren't synced in real time. Instead, they're downloaded and you decide how often you want to download new emails.

Step 2: Set up POP

First, set up POP in Gmail

  1. On your computer, open Gmail.
  2. In the top right, click Settings .
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  5. In the "POP Download" section, select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
  6. At the bottom of the page, click Save Changes.

Next, make changes on your email client

Go to your client, like Microsoft Outlook, and check these settings.

Incoming Mail (POP) Server

pop.gmail.com

Requires SSL: Yes

Port: 995

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server

smtp.gmail.com

Requires SSL: Yes

Requires TLS: Yes (if available)

Requires Authentication: Yes

Port for SSL: 465

Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587

If you use Gmail with your work or school account, check with your administratorfor the correct SMTP configuration.

You should not give up mate.

Your gmail address is working well, just need to change a few security settings under Google's My Account against your iPhone, then the iPhone can be working for sure.
