Gmail Exchange ActiveSync server settings are necessary for accessing incoming messages and online folders in an Exchange-enabled email program. This is true whether the email client is on a phone, tablet, computer, or other device.

Google supports Google Sync (and the Exchange ActiveSync protocol) for Google Apps for Business, Government, and Education. If you're not one of those users, you cannot set up a new Google Sync connection that uses Exchange ActiveSync.

Note: You can always access Gmail using POP3 or IMAP. Sending mail over Gmail requires SMTP.
