    Anyone know why I cannot add my Gmail account to my Playbook? It tells me I have to change some settings.

    That isn't saying to change some settings, that is more like what I'd expect if you or the service were offline, and may just be maintenance going on at google.

    People with attitude just might know the answer! We get irritated by the amount of psychics people assume exist. Instead of ignoring answers with attitude, just provide better info in the start. Your screenshot was very helpful.

    From your screenshot, it looks like you just did "www.google.com....". I think you need the https://

    If my memory serves me well, isn't there an issue with Gmail on the PB if you use 2 step authentication? Could that be your problem?

    If you're talking to me, I didn't have an earlier post. You might try using android Email, which is part of the PB's android runtime. You can access it by installing Quick App Manager from app world, then opening the app, tapping on "Email" and then "open". It will then take you through the setup process.
