change the settings in your gmail account.
Go to the following link and change the settings to
Access for less secure apps > turn on
https://www.google.com/settings/secu...anexp=lbe-R1_C

And in your N9
go to accounts
add accounts
Choose "Other mail accounts"
Write your username (example@gmail.com) and password
tap on manual setup
choose imap4 or pop (i used imap4 with server imap.gmail.com)
SSL secured at port 993

outgoing server
smtp.gmail.com
SSL secured
465 port
authentication plain password.
and then you can reccieve and send emails through your Nokia N9.
Hope this helped someone.
so I tried to allow less secure apps, BUT it requires that I disable 2-Step verification...

Do any other mail services work (i.e. hotmail, yahoo, outlook)?

Eventually managed to set up Hotmail with IMAP4 manually after a lot of fiddling:-

Incoming mail server:
Server address = imap-mail.outlook.com
Secure connection = SSL
Port = 993

Outgoing mail server:
Server address = smtp-mail.outlook.com
Secure connection = TLS
Port = 587
Authentication = Plain password

Is anyone else having trouble with Mail for Exchange and GMail on Nokia N9?

A week ago my email stopped sync-ing (endless spinning squircle in the top-right corner). At first I thought it was a corrupt .qmf directory, so I removed it as suggested in this post:
https://talk.maemo.org/showthread.ph...55#post1332155
This has worked for me on one or two previous occasions.

This time it didn't help. I tried various combinations of deleting the directory, rebooting the device and, enabling/disabling and removing/recreating my email settings. During one of the attempts, it managed to sync mail once and then not again.

Now I have tried restoring a backup from July 2017, and email seems to sync again.

i might have a similar problem: mail connection loading forever, mail client not resonding, not being able to open it again without rebooting, .just works occasionally.
i also tried that fix again that you refer to but neither with nor without root access it actually DOES anything (just jumps in the next input row).
does it execute the command in your case?
does anyone have any ideas?

Are you also using GMail and Mail for Exchange?

It works as a regular user.

It doesn't give any output on success, it just removes the directory.
You can run this command before and after and see if anything changes:
Code:
ls -la /home/user/ | grep qmf
Instead of removing the directory, you can rename it:
Code:
mv /home/user/.qmf/ /home/user/.qmf.bad/
...and then remove it after rebooting:
Code:
rm -rf /home/user/.qmf.bad/
