Email Sync issues - @ucla.edu
Hey all, I've had my thunderbolt for about a week and I've been trying to sync my school email address and i cannot seem to do it.
My email address is an @ucla.edu email and I followed these instructions:
Configuring Android Device
and once I select next, it tells me that my password is incorrect, which it is definitely not. Ive tried every variation of those instructions that I can think of, including the POP3 and IMAP selections. I just can't get it to work!
I desperately need this to be hooked up!
Please help me!!

If you are on a domain did you enter the domain\username as instructed? Usually you don't need the domain, but... have you tried both with and without?
Also, were you trying between 12am and 6am today, the 29th? [Server Maintenance] Sometimes these maintenance periods kinda run overtime (oops).

I tried getting this to work on my university email, and it never did work. I just set my .edu email to forward to my @gmail.com address.
It is just a pain if you want to reply from your .edu email. I just let my professors know that I use two email addresses.
hope that helps.

@FrankXS: I've been trying everyday since I got it and at all hours of the day. However, I tried all of your suggestions and still no luck. It either says could not connect to exchange activesync server or that my user name and password are still incorrect.
Also, i don't believe its actually gmail based.
@Forgetful, I tried that as well and still no luck.
there has got to be a way to get this to work...
I appreciate all the help by the way!

University of Minnesota also uses gmail-based .edu mail. I had to set up a second, "Google Desktop/Mobile Client Password" for my account, which was done on an internal page where I also can just change my normal password and other account options type stuff. Then I followed these directions:
Email Client/Mobile Device Setup Guide
To set up your desktop client or mobile device:
1. Set a Google desktop/mobile device client password on your Internet Account Options page.
2. Follow the instructions on the Google Help Center Web site for your particular client or device and use the University of Minnesota-specific information below. (Note: IMAP already has been enabled for you by the University.)
* Username—Enter your full University of Minnesota email address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
* Password—Enter the Google desktop/mobile client password you created.
* Email Address—Enter your full U of M email address again.
* Incoming Mail Server—Enter imap.gmail.com.
* Incoming Mail Port—Enter 993 and select Use SSL.
* Outgoing Mail Server—Enter smtp.gmail.com.
* Outgoing Mail Port—Enter 587 and select Use TLS.

Re: Email Sync issues - @ucla.edu
I am at university n Sheffield, UK and am having the same problems on my android Samsung s3 but I have finally done it!
Sign into your uni email account on a computer and click on the settings button.
Click the 'Forwarding and POP/IMAP' tab.
Scroll to the bottom and click 'Configure instructions' under where it says 'Configure your email client'
Click 'I want to enable IMAP'
Select your device from the list
Then follow the instructions there on your phone, but make sure you change the IMAP and SMTP server names to be what it says and you also change the port number to what it says too. In addition, change the security settings like it says.
Hope this works for you too!!
