How do I create a new email account? I did this when prompted to do so when initially setting up my phone, but now I want to do it on a phone that has already been set up but cannot figure out how.

The iPhone keeps on rejecting my log on credentials. Isn't the username for a Gmail account the entire email address? I tried entering both the entire email address as well as the part preceding "@," but in either case, the iPhone states that "The user name or password for "smtp.gmail.com" is incorrect."

Is smtp.gmail.com the correct outgoing mail server for a Gmail account?
Is pop.gmail.com the correct incoming mail server for a Gmail account?

As far as I know you set up the Gmail account as an IMAP account, not a POP account. When you set it up, use this:

It will be easy to set it up, all you have to do is enter the email address and the password.

Thank you. It worked when I selected Google.

Perhaps the earlier problem is that I selected "Other" and set up the Gmail account as a Pop3 account with all of the same settings that I use in Outlook.
