I have always used the Mail app for Gmail on my iPad mini (7.1.1) but when I went away and connected from another location, this would not work. Accordingly, I used Gmail (webmail) via Safari.

Now back home again and using Mail again, I can send Gmails but cannot receive them. I get the message:

“The mail server is not responding. Verify that you have entered the correct account info in Mail settings.”

When I go to “Account” in “Settings”, I see: Name / Email / Password / Description Gmail and I’m sure these are all OK.

Below this I see: Outgoing Mail Server / SMTP / Gmail SMTP Server.

Comments greatly appreciated.
