    I have multiple gmail accounts running through my Mail 4.1. One has stopped working siting password problems. After several attempts to fix it I removed it and reinstalled it. It still will not accept it. I was able to add a different gmail account and have no problems accessing the account directly through gmail sign in.
    Needless to say I am completely perplexed.

    Any ideas??

    Now after having my computer off for the night I tried again to reinstall the gmail account. I used the exact same procedure I used yesterday but today it worked on first try.
    I'm glad it is back but what happened and why does it work now and did not before? I would appreciate any thoughts or explanations?

    Hello,

    I'm glad to hear that the problem fixed itself.

    Everyone has their little problems, downtime, migrations, etc.

    Who knows, maybe you were being moved to a new server pool or there was only a problem with some of their accounts last night.

    Thank you popowich. I'm still learning and sometimes it seems computers do strange things, in my eyes at least. But I figure there is always a reason and I'd like to know them.
