I'm trying to figure out how to send OTA E-Mail settings for connecting to a GMail account, but have not success.

GMail uses SSL for POP3 or IMAP connections. I assume I should use "STARTTLS" encryption. I can send the settings to the phone ok, but the phone cannot connect to the GMailbox.

Can you help?

Hi Fino,

You can find more information on this issue here:


The bottom line is that you probably want to update to the NowSMS 2009 release candidate (http://www.nowsms.com/download/nowsms2009rc.zip),which adds support for "SSL/TLS" encryption in addition to "STARTTLS" encryption in the OMA OTA web form.

This other thread also details the raw XML changes that are required if you are creating your own OTA provisioning files.
