Default Modifying email account config

Please Login to Remove!

Hello
I had previously configured by T-Mo BB 8320 with a certain POP3 email account of importance.
My email provider has partnered with google and encourages web interface, and also migrating accounts away from POP3 and to IMAP.
I have received server info on IMAP config. When I try to edit my BB email account, the 'account type' is greyed and I cannot change from POP3 to IMAP.
I have tried deleting the account completely, but when I try to reestablish it, it confirms success after just entering email address & password--I don't get the chance to config this address for imap.
I've tried configuring through the handheld and through my.t-mobile.
Have upgraded BB OS to latest and desktop software is latest.
I just need to get this email account configured as IMAP on my BB.
All suggestions appreciated...

Try leaving the password blank and then following the google directions as listed.

P.S. the bb doesnt do well with IMAP.. it actually slows things down quite a bit

Thanks for the tip--it worked; allowed me access to server settings. I did some checking around and decided to re-configure it as a POP account on the BB
