You have to go to the GMail site and authorize the accent shortly after attempting to connect.

Gmail introduced a new way to authenticate your password called OAUTH. MailWasher has the ability to use OAUTH to access the account, however MW Mobile doesn't.
Anyway, you need to make a change in your Google Account to make this work.
If you logon here https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps
>> change the selector for 'Allow less secure apps' to ON.
Now, try and add your Gmail account again. It may still block access as it's coming from a different location, so check your gmail inbox and allow this location as well.
You may need to also create an application specific password if the above doesn't work: https://support.google.com/a/answer/1032419?hl=en

Once my pea brain had worked out that first I needed two step verification set up on Google the rest became quite easy.
Thanks again for your help
