    I don't know which one is the best, I tried to open my gmail account with both options but none of them works

    For gmail it needs to be IMAP, google stopped using Exchange ActiveSync a while back

    servers for mine are
    imap.gmail.com port 993
    smtp.gmail.com port 465
    all boxes under these settings are ticked

    the only downside of gmail, unless things have changed in last few months, calendar and contacts don't sync
