Are you using imap.gmail.com:993 with SSL for receiving and
smtp.gmail.com:465 with SSL for sending? That's what works for me (Evo
version 2.22.3 on F9). The Gmail Help page has full information.

PS "Works" is a relative term here. "Mostly works" is closer to the
truth because Evo occasionally loses contact with Gmail and has to be
restarted to get it back. I don't know if this is an Evo problem or a
Gmail one.
