Hello and thank you for choosing your tablet.....are you using the Gmail application?OrAre you using the built-in browser, and navigating to the email login?

hi- hsve tried both. have tried to access my normal email via the email app and also tried to access google mail
via the gmail app. they were working fine for 2 years or so until 2 weeks ago. think I may have some of the settings wrong but cant find which. have tried the email app directly and also the social hub app. social hub seems to be disabled but when trying to set up via the social hub app it responds with unable to connect server.

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago. the default EMAIL app included with almost every android device is really a piece of junk.....and i would advise on NOT using it.Rather.....go to the PLAY STORE.....and get the official Gmail can also get the official app for just about EVERY email service out AOL, and Yahoo, and Hotmail..Remove all email apps you have now.....and re-download the Gmail app first.
