Gmail service errors

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: What does 'Gmail error 400: Mail service not enabled' mean?

A: This means the Gmail API that Speaking Email CarPlay uses to communicate with Gmail is not able to be used for your account.


Most likely your email address is not a Gmail account. It is possible to be a Google Account but not a Gmail account (for example if you use the account for YouTube but have never enabled Gmail).


Otherwise, if you have G Suite your organization administrator may need to enable the Gmail feature or Gmail API access.


If it still doesn't work with your account, please request a refund.
