Questions:

I have to add an Exchange Account in Android Emulator to work with GCM & Calendar API. I am following this tutorial for creating an account, but whenever I am trying to set an account I get the following error:

  Couldn't open Connection to Server

By using any other APIs, I am getting : the server requires security features your phone does not support for an example in Android APIs 4.0

Here are some things I’ve noticed:

  • As you can see below in my screen shot, there is one more field for PORT - 443 getting by default.

I am using same credentials which I always use to login to my GMAIL Account, but in process of creating Exchange Account in Emulator I am getting Incorrect UserName or Password

Please see below screen shot:

    (i.e: [email protected]) 

and has entered correct password but getting the error below:

I have tried by using 6 different email IDs and have had friends try, but we all getting same dialog Couldn't Finish

How can I resolve this problem?

Earlier I was using an AVD and by using that AVD I was able to work with GCM, Calendar and more. I deleted that AVD and now whenever I am trying to create AVD using lower version I get the server requires security features your phone does not support

Answer:

Are you a paid gmail account user? Because as per this link

Starting January 30, 2013, users, other than paid Google Apps users, won’t be able to set up new devices using Google Sync.

So the tutorial you followed to create exchange account won’t work. As of now I couldn’t find any other solution provided by google for this functionality.
