    OK understand and just have been made aware that the contacts do not sync with the standard "add Gmail account" function in mail....
    Will the notes continue to be synced when installing as exchange server? My work email (Outlook on Exchange Server) does not (set up as exchange server)...

    I had follow step of you and my acc has been setup on ipad but when I go to mail function, there is error appears with info:
    (It allways appear while loading mail, so I cannot access my gmail.)


    Password Incorrect
    Enter the password for the Exchange account "Gmail"

    I'm sure 100% I type right my password.


    @Note: Before setup mail on ipad, my acc has been protected by phone. Do you think I cannot setup mail because it has protected by phone (authentication).

    Please help, Thanks
