I have a gmail account that works perfectly well via the gmail/google
website (ie., user/pass work fine)... But upon setting it up in my
Mail app on my Mac Pro running OSX 10.8.5, it doesn't work. I
consistently get the following message:
"Logging in to the Google IMAP server "imap.gmail.com
" failed. Make
sure the user name and password you entered are correct, then click
Continue. If the information isn't correct, you cannot receive
I imagine I'm overlooking something obvious, but I can't figure it out.
I've reviewed and followed the setup instructions found here :
...making sure IMAP is enabled for the gmail account online, but
despite that, I get the same error messages.
I have other email accounts setup and running fine on Mail : me.com
yahoo, verizon, etc.... but the gmail account never works and I can't
figure out what I may be missing...
Any thoughts or insights would be most welcome.
