    I can't get it to work with my personal website email address or my aol address. I even tried a few of my friends accounts and on all of the accounts I tried I get a wrong password message.

    Anyone get it to work?

    That's because it's a Gmail-specific application...

    I have Mail by Google working with my domains email. I'm running version 1.5.1. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling it? Or a battery pull for that matter It might help, and it sure can't hurt.

    (assuming you don't have your website linked in with google apps....)

    Mail by gogle only works with gmail and google hosted domains--meaning the domain itself must already be using google app-based services.

    You can't just enter in any email address. For your personal website you'll need to start using google apps with that. Or (and this includes aol if they allow pop) the only other way to do what u want are to program your gmail to access your other accounts via pop, and send messages while appearing to be your other accounts.

    Even if you're using google apps you still need to download and install separate email client
    for google apps email and gmail account. It has two different colors (red for gmail and blue for google apps).

    Hope it helps.

    hey, I downloaded the mail by google a little while back. Anyway, it won't work with the address I provided. I did everything: set up new account on gmail, enabled pop, downloaded the app (blue one), and it still won't work. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    hey it says, "username and password do not match" however it is correct, it imports the email from that email, it just won't work on my blackberry (7250).

    if your icon is blue, that's for google apps. go to mobile.google.com on your bb, and download the gmail app there (or get the google mobile updater, too... it's pretty good). the gmail app will be a red icon, which is specific to gmail.com addresses. the blue icon app (mail by google) allegedly works for some people signing in with gmail addresses. however, it's the red icon (gmail app) that is designed for gmail addresses.

    also, you shouldn't have to enable pop for the gmail app to work.

    I can't get either app to recognize my password which I have changed thinking this would work. It hasn't. I just set up my gmail email to be forwarded to my bb email.
