Email setup won't save

I went to add a gmail account, and added it no problem. Password worked fine, and was edit the settings. When I went to check the email account it said there was no email address setup. So I go back to setup and get this message:


"A new Blackberry device has been detected. You must move your email account(s) to receive email on this device. To move an email account, you will need to type the email account password. At least one email account must be moved to set up email on this device."


I hit the "Move Email Account" button and enter the correct password. I get all the confirmations, and can edit settings for the account if I want. But then when I go to check the email, I get the same message again. I have tried it with multiple email addresses and SIM cards and the same thing happens to all of them.


What can I do to fix this?

Re: Email setup won't save

Welcome to the forums!

I would first try a hard reset.  With your device powered ON, remove the battery for several minutes, then replace it.  See if you are able to manipulate your e-mail accounts after this.  Smiley Happy

Re: Email setup won't save



This happens to me too! I've tried the "hard reset" but it still doesn't want to work. Do you have any more suggestions as to what I can do to fix this? 


The email was working just 2 weeks ago!! I went on holiday, used a different SIMcard but didn't change any of the settings. When I returned, I used the SIMcard I normally use and noticed that the email wasn't working and shortly found out that it was because the email setup won't save.....


Thank you in advance for your help!
