To use a Gmail account with Daylite Mail on iOS, certain labels need to be set to “Show in IMAP”. If not configured correctly, an error will be displayed when trying to sync your Gmail account.

 If you are experiencing this issue, please perform the following steps below:

  1. Log in to your Gmail account
  2. Click the gear icon then choose Settings 
    in Gmail_inbox view_settings
  3. Choose Forwarding and POP/IMAP and select Enable IMAP
  4. Under Folder size limits, select Do not limit the number of messages in an IMAP folder (default):
    in Gmail_inbox view_settings_enable IMAP
  5. Click Save Changes
  6. Choose Labels select Show in IMAP for
    - All Mail
    - Sent
    - Spam
    - Trash
    in Gmail_inbox view_settings_labels
  7. Open the Daylite app on iOS and tap My Mail

    Your Gmail account should now sync properly with Daylite and the error should be resolved.

You must ensure that All Mail, Sent, Spam, and Trash are checked to "Show in IMAP" or else you can get an error when adding your email to Daylite
