    I tried searching but am i the only one having this problem?

    I'm on iphone 5 iOS 6.1.2

    I'm using the default mail app with a gmail acct and it takes FOREVERR to send an email...if it even goes out. I have tried deleting my acct and readding it, but it didn't work.

    I just tried to add my gmail as "other" pop acct...however it started downloading mails from 3 years ago! It doesn't snyc like it should when used as "gmail" in default mail app.

    UPDATE

    I got it to work using IMAP. I also had to put in my username and password for outgoing mail sever.

    thanks
