How to setup MAILBOX app for iOS with Gmail.

Question

Ive installed MAILBOX after getting a message from Dropbox that hooking Dropbox up to Mailbox would get me a gig of space. And Im always in front of the row for extra free space.

But after installing it on my iPad, and trying to get Gmail into Mailbox, i get the message:

"Mailbox needs acces to your IMAP folders in order to sync your data. Please enable your AllMail, Sent, Trash and [Mailbox] folders in Gmail settings and try again".

When I check my settings in Gmail (which only is possible on my laptop apparently) ive notice that everything is allready as it should be.

Pop is enabledIMAP is enabledWith deleting, auto-expunge is onNo Folder size limits

And thats all the info in Gmail Settings for IMAP. Am I missing something? What do I have to do to get Mailbox set up and ready for my 1 gig of free space?

Found it.

  • Go to Gmail on a desktop
  • Go to Labels
  • Check "AllMail", "Trash" "Sent" and the rest you want is on "show"
  • Go to the MailBox app Log in.
  • Go to Settings
  • Set up Dropbox

Tataaaa 1 gig extra for space in your Dropbox.

Done.
