Re: Adding gmail to email client
I just experimented and was able to set up my Gmail account using the stock email app on my Nexus 7 using the "Add Account" feature then selecting IMAP. I was also previously able to set it up on my Razr Maxx (stock JB 4.1.2) using the stock email app (I'm on Verizon and it was pre-installed). I did not choose the manual setup on either device and just let it configure itself automatically using the "next" button. There isn't any reason why you can't do it. Since it would not recognize your user name and/or password initially, you would not be able to proceed to the next step regardless of which other parameters you choose...it would fail every time. So, the only logical cause would be an incorrect user name or password but it seems you've tried multiple times. If you're certain the information you entered was correct, then I have no answer other than a suggestion to try a third-party email app (I use Enhanced Email for my non-Gmail accounts). Try again or install a third-party email app and let us know the result.
