  1. I really would like to set my account up like this as well to keep it totally separate from my other gmail account. I have followed your instructions and have no problems receiving emails; I just cannot send anything out. I've double-checked that I have all the settings as you list here. What am I doing wrong? I'm on an Android mobile device. Everything I try to send fails.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

  2. my only recommendation is to use the gmail app offered for Android.

    I am able to set up both my private gmail account and my neiu account and keep them completely separate.

  3. I was having trouble like Melinda. I googled the issue and found a fix.

    Instead of setting the authentication to 'auto', choose 'SSL' instead.

    Example:

    Username: netid@neiu.edu
    password: your NEIU netid password
    IMAP Server: imap.gmail.com
    Port: 993
    Security type: SSL or SSL (Accept all certificates)
    Authentication method: Auto
    Outgoing settings:
    SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
    Port: 465
    Authentication method: SSL
