    Tip: Having trouble with Gmail?

    I couldn't get my gmail account to work with my Kindle Fire. I have Google's 2-step verification turned on, but even using an application specific password it wouldn't work. So I turned 2-step off. It still wouldn't work! Amazon had Enhanced Email free in the Appstore today, so I decided to give that a try. Still wouldn't work, but it gave me an error message that told me exactly what the problem was. I did not have IMAP enabled for my gmail account. Duh. I had totally forgotten that setting even existed. I enabled IMAP and what do you know, gmail now works on my Fire. I turned 2-step back on, and using an application specific password, it still works.

    So, if you are having trouble getting your gmail to work on the Fire, enable IMAP in your gmail settings!!
