Google Mail

Post by very newbie »

Hi
I have a google mail account which the Archos browser appears to open but will not display the messages.

Does anyone know of a way to get google mail to work, or at least some kind of work around?

Thanks.

I personally don't use the Email client in the Archos, however I did try it just now. I can confirm this is a bug, however not really sure how to get emails to appear ... I'd use the web browser to browse my emails. Temporary solution, I know but I'm not really sure why it does that.

EDIT: There's another solution. I've noticed you can send emails effectively using gmail with it, only receiving is problematic. Thus, set it up to forward to some hotmail account you create(d), receive from that account, but send from gmail. It should, in theory, work. Again, I don't use the Archos for emails, however testing this seems to work, so ymmv.

Many thanks for your reply mediate.
Just to make things clear. It is the web browser that I am using to try to access Google mail but it will not load the messages in such an old browser.
I see from your second paragraph that you believe I can send from the gmail account. I will try that now but I do not think that it will even do that.

Edit:- Again many thanks you have forced me to look at the browser and gmail again and it does display my messages and allow me to send and recieve mail. It displays it in their basic html version.
I should have looked closer in the first place!!

Cheers
