    Have you chosen a Gmail account from the beginning, or have you chosen "Other"?

    I had the problem once, had to edit the "Advanced" email settings, and switch on SSL for incoming (port 993) and outgoing (port 587) messages. Also had to put the account and password twice, I think, but I didn't try otherwise since. All in all, check the advanced settings against what Google specifies.
