Reminder: No More Gmail via Exchange

As Michael noted in the previous blog entry here, Google has phased out access to Gmail via Exchange ActiveSync for new users. So, what I say about that approach in “Four Methods to Access a Gmail Account” starting on page 50—and particularly the subtopics “Set Up Gmail as Exchange ActiveSync” and “Choose a Gmail Method (or More Than One)” on pages 53–55—is now true only if you’d previously set up your device to access a Gmail account using Exchange ActiveSync.

If you have a device that was never previously configured to access Gmail via Exchange, that option is no longer available to you; you’ll have to choose from among the remaining three methods, of which one of the IMAP varieties will likely serve you best.
