    I keep trying to Send/Receive mail and the Username/Password screen keeps
    popping up. I have had no problems until the past few days, and have had this
    account for over a year. I tried going to the "Tools", "Accounts", "Servers"
    tabs and changing the password, but I keep getting this message:

    Account: 'imap.gmail.com', Server: 'imap.gmail.com', Protocol: POP3, Server
    Response: '-ERR [AUTH] Username and password not accepted.', Port: 995,
    Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

    So now what? I really need this account to work so that I can apply for jobs
    using it! :) And I do remember having a heck of a time setting it up since I
    am not so much computer savvy when it comes to YPops and servers and such.
    Please help!

    Can you login here https://www.google.com/accounts/ with your details?

    When the log on box appears in WM requesting PW & UN always click cancel,
    never OK. Or WM wipes the settings.

    Only ever enter your detail at tools>accounts>select your
    account>properties>server tab, and as I say always
    cancel the request pop up.

    Get back with any error message.
