Could be a glitch, probably if you try again in a few minutes it will work.   May sure you are entering your password correctly also.

Re: How do I set up Gmail on my blackberry z10

server address: imap.gmail.com

port: 993

Encryption: SSL

IMAP Path Prefix: (left blank)

 

SMTP Username: (your gmail email name example@gmail.com)

SMTP Password: (your password)

SMTP Server Address: smtp.gmail.com

SMTP Port: 465

SMTP Encryption: SSL

 

 

Note these settings should mostly be done for you all you should have to enter is your gmail email address and then password!

Start with only your username and password.

 

**edit, use the same settings as pcable stated, except I am not required for an SMTP password. I leave that blank.

Yes you would leave the SMTP password field blank, but if entering the full settings you might need to put it there too, and it would be the same as your regular gmail password, BUT you should not need to enter any of these settings yourself, the BB should grab them for you automatically.  You just enter your email first and then it prompts you for the password.   My guess is that it was a server glitch.  Make sure you have a strong cellular signal or are on wifi when you do this setup.

You are on the stock OS correct, not a leaked OS you found on a 3rd Party site like CrackBerry.com or BBOS right?  There was a version of 10.1 that I tried out there that messed up my email.

Deborah, I've seen this also. Several times. Normally, just re-enter your simple password. Ignore the SMTP password.
