Trying to get IMAP going with GMAIL on my Nokia 770 updated to IT2006.

Has anyone succeeded, or know how to further troubleshoot?

This client is not specifically supported by Google, however, they furnish network parameters for "other" clients at the user's risk.

Receiving headers works as far as I have tried.

Receiving e-mail bodies causes the e-mail client to lock up. (that is, if I set for receive headers only, and try to open a specific e-mail, the client locks up; if I set for receive header+body, then the client locks up when I next check e-mail at all.)

Sending e-mail works as far as I have tried (not tried attachment, but did successfully send a text-only e-mail.)

In receiving e-mail, I tried setting e-mail receive for TLS (didn't work at all) and SSL/IMAP4S (failed as above).

Here are the network parameters supplied by Google:

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - requires SSL:     imap.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS:     smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587
Account Name:   your Gmail username (including @gmail.com)
Email Address:  your full Gmail email address (username at gmail.com)
Password:       your Gmail password
