MWM 2.0 won't let gmail account on

Postby epack Mon Dec 01, 2014 4:56 am

The beta test email did mention there could be issues with gmail accounts, and sure enough, having them. Followed the instructions, verified credentials were correct, but nada. It initially came in with incoming set as imap.gmail.com, but I changed it to pop.gmail.com after clicking on the POP3 button, as imap is disabled on the account. Message stated "your email provider has indicated your email settings are not correct (usually an incorrect password)...". At one point it did refuse the connection, so I tried the link indicated to allow device access, and it did say it was enabled in the browser. Still won't connect, tho.

[later] Tried it one more time. This time I left the incoming as imap.gmail.com, but still clicked on pop3, and now it connected. As noted, it's configured as pop, and that's what I use on my device email programs, why would this work here?

Probably shouldn't argue with success :) but I'd like to know.

We'd like to know too, we'll do some more testing here with various configurations. A lot of the time with Gmail accounts, it can be because you're using a new device and they didn't recognize it.

Remember GMail blocks access to any account from any new device until you respond to their timed email indicating that it is OK.

It's addressed to the registered user of the account and is about "unauthorized access"

Did you try going in to the account via the Web to see if the message is there?

Gmail never blocked access to my brand new iPad Air 2, I just loged in with my application password and got access with no extra authorisation required.
