    Default Gmail won't send emails since ios7

    I have my gmail account on my iPhone and iPad, but since updating to ios7, no emails go out, I get a message that the outgoing server failed. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Delete your gmail account and re-add it

    Google has pulled support for exchange server unless you’re on a paid Google program... that was effective around the first of the year.

    If you don’t have it on a device after last January, according to Google, you can’t do it ... without a paid Google Apps account...

    Try a reset of network settings? Does it work in the gmail app?

    This my sound stupid. But log in on your computer. Gmail may have locked it due to unknown location/device. That happened to me when I switched from a iPhone 4 to iPhone 5. Ended up just changing password. Then it worked.

    Back in Jan Google disabled new Exchange style set ups of Gmail accounts for normal/free Google/Gmail accounts (more info here: Google Sync End of Life - Google Apps Help ). AKA, if you are using the same device, it is prob still working, but you can't add new devices, you have to set it up through the Gmail option for new mail accounts, which uses the IMAP protocol rather than Exchange sync.

    Quite true, but I was worried that future searches would lead people to think that maybe they can make it work, so I added further explanation and a link, just so the expectations are clear.
