follow these instructions to the letter, and set it up as IMAP
(remove your account from the nook first, and then setup manually using the configuration given, and dont forget to 'enable' IMAP in your gmail settings, as shown in the link)
Hey, from what I understand Gmail is no longer supporting EXCHANGE, which I believe is the default way that the nook tries to setup Gmail. You have to enter the settings manually as an IMAP account.
As far as I know, because free Gmail doesn't supprt EXCHANGE anymore, there is no way to use google calendars with the built in Nook Calendars app. There might be other apps you can use that support gmail's CalDAV. (I am not sure about that)
This change took place recently (January 2013, I believe).
Hope this is helpful to you.
These are the settings that I use to get gmail to work:
1. Enter email and password
5. Port 993
This has worked for both my Tablet and my HD+
Hope you can get it working!
Before entering any settings on your Nook, you must enable IMAP in gmail first. See the link I posted above in the 2nd or 3rd post.
Nice - thanks so much got mine working!! - Karen
So... Have u gotten it set up yet???
Thanks for all the suggestions. As I said in my original post, email's fine. It's just the calendar that's not working and, from PTodd's really useful reply, it looks like it probably won't for the foreseeable future! Thanks again to all of you!
