Setting up Gmail on your N800/N810

Well, there isn't really any magic here but since it took me a few cracks to get it right I thought I'd throw it on the web in case someone else needed a hand.

First, if you're on the N800 head over to Nokia and grab the latest firmware updates.

Then fire up the email client, and add a new account. Call it whatever you like - does not matter.

Your username is your full Gmail email address, and enter your password.

The incoming email server (POP3) is pop.gmail.com and the outgoing is smtp.gmail.com.
Now, click Advanced Settings & set "Security" to SSL - port 995 on the incoming tab. Then set "Security" to Normal (TLS) - port 587.

If you have not done so already, log into your Gmail account and enable POP access.
