OS X Mavericks :: Apple Mail Forgets Password For Gmail?

Nov 30, 2014

I've seen this problem documented elsewhere, but none of the "solutions" seem to work. 

I have two-step verification enabled on my Gmail account. I generate a unique application password for Apple Mail, which I enter into the password field in the Mail application. 

Inexplicably, anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 week later, when I attempt to send an e-mail I will be prompted that the password is "wrong." It isn't, because I HAVEN'T CHANGED ANYTHING. The only way I can get the message to go away is to revoke and then re-generate another unique password.

Interestingly, I can receive e-mails into the account with no problem, but it seems the sending part is where Mail gets wonky. I have tried: 

-Removing the e-mail account entirely from Mail and setting it up from scratch

-Deleting all traces of the old password from my Mac, including from Keychain Access (did this combined with the above). 

I am getting tired of this and am two steps from ditching Mail for a more functional e-mail client.

OS X Mavericks :: Mail Still Constantly Asks For Gmail Password

Jun 19, 2014

I have been unable to use Mail for over a year now due to the fact that no matter what I do it asks me for my Gmail password every two minutes.  I thought I would give it a try after upgrading to Yosemite Beta and I see it is still the same situation.  Hard to believe that after YEARS of this known issue there is still no fix.  Mail is unusable in this state and it forces me to us ***whisper*** Outlook ***gag***.  

At least on Mavericks I could use Google Chat in Messages but that functionality is broken now in Yosemite.  

I have deleted every Google related item in my keychain, deleted and reinstalled the account, said really nice things to my mac and it still won't cooperate.  Now when I try to add the account In Yosemite it will only connect with Contacts and Calendar and can't even make the connection with Mail, Messages or Notes.  

Strange because my Google Drive sync works just fine!

OS X Mavericks :: Apple Mail Gmail Not Always Working - Comcast Internet

Jun 24, 2014

Running 10.9.3 and having an issues with gmail. Been running our business and personal gmail thru Apple mail for years and never had a issue. We have also just switch over to Comcast High Speed business for internet. The issue is this.....first thing in the morning start up the computer and open up mail. The app runs but no new mail comes in. I check my iphone and I'll have 6-7 new emails. I'll hit "Get Mail" a few times and still nothing happens. Now the strange part. If I send and email to anyone within 2-3 seconds I'll get all of my new emails. For the rest of the day its seems like mail is hanging up "Somewhere". The same thing is happening on 2-3 other macs in my company which are set up the same way.

OS X Mavericks :: Apple Mail Search Not Searching Gmail Archive?

Aug 28, 2014

I recently got a new iMac and backed up from Time Machine.  Everything is fine apart from Apple Mail, which no longer searches my Gmail archive.  The archive is still there, all 33,000 messages, but just not searchable. 

So, for example, if I got an email from a guy called George a month ago, when I search 'George' nothing comes up.  I can manually go to the Archive and find the email but obviously that takes a lot of time. 

Is this an Apple issue or a Gmail issue?  Given that I run the same account on my laptop and it's all working fine, plus it was working fine before, I would assume it;s an Apple fault.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Remove Mail From Gmail When Archiving Locally On Apple Mail?

Jun 21, 2012

I have been using Gmail for about 7 months, now. I am using it in conjunction with a MacBook Pro (15 inch, mid-2010, i5, 2.53 GHz, running OS 10.7.4 and the current version of Mail) and an iPhone 4S (iOS 5.1.1 with the pre-installed Mail app). I, rarely, use Gmail's web interface and prefer to view and manage my mail using my devices.

I, recently, discovered a Gmail behavior that I wasn't aware of. Whenever I deleted an email from my Inbox on my MacBook, it wouldn't, actually, delete from Gmail. Instead, a copy of the mail would remain in Gmail's "All Mail" folder. It seems that Gmail and I have different ideas about deleting. When I delete, it means that I would, actually, like to get rid of it, not hide it somewhere else. After sorting through the, almost, 3000 emails in the "All Mail" folder and re-deleting everything that I thought I had already deleted (a pain, to be sure), I found the solution to my problem.In Apple Mail, I checked both Trash options in my account preferences then selected Gmail's "Trash" folder and used the "Use This Mailbox For" option to map it to Mail's trash (similarly, I mapped the trash folder on my iPhone to Gmail's trash folder). Now, everything I delete is going to the same place (and actually getting deleted).

Applications :: How To Export Mail From Apple Mail Program To Gmail

Aug 13, 2010

I have decided to start using gmail and keeping my email online instead of stored locally in the Mail program.

I have all my old mail and sent mail downloaded locally in the Mail program.

Is there an easy way to export all of that into gmail? I see I can import mail into gmail from other mail accounts, but here I am talking about importing mail that is now stored locally.

OS X :: Mail Rejecting Password For Gmail Account

Jul 30, 2010

All of a sudden, Mail has begun rejecting my password for my Gmail Account. Yesterday the password was fine and had been fine for about 10 or 11 months, until tonight. This is the box I see when I try to get mail: Mail is rejecting every single password that I use. I'm 100% positive that I'm entering the correct password. Is it possible that Gmail is down or doing maintenance which is causing this problem?

OS X :: Mail Refusing To Accept Updated Gmail Password

Jul 25, 2010

so after my friend got his gmail account hacked I decided it was time for a new password. Updated it in gmail, on my iphone and iPad and no problems. However friggin' Mac Mail refuses to accept the new password. I even wrote it out in Text Edit and pasted it into both the gmail web interface and mac mail. Gmail web interface works just fine but Mac Mail refuses to accept the new password.

Is there any way I can fix this save for deleting my gmail account and recreating it(something I am want to do since I have a metric ton of messages).

Oy, Apple ignoring these tiny bugs is getting quite annoying....

For what its worth I'm on 10.6.4 and everything else is up to date.

Update, now I'm getting "The server returned the error: Web login required. (Failure)"

but it doesn't clear when I log into the web mail....

OS X :: My Gmail Seems To Have Disappeared In Apple Mail?

Jun 3, 2010

I won't say that it's deleted because it's still in the accounts in preferences in Apple Mail, but the gmail imap folders used to be along the left side of the program are not there.

All I see are 2 Junk (Gmail) folders on the left along with my other two email accounts I use. My Mobile Me and Comcast emails are still there.

MacBook Air :: Why Use Apple Mail Rather Than Gmail

Feb 15, 2012

I've had my first Mac for about a year now - 11" Mac Air - and love it. But I'm still using Gmail, rather than the Apple mail program. I've got my iphone's calendar synced up to Google's and I can't see a reason to use the Apple mail app instead of Gmail in a browser. I'm running Chrome as my browser too?

OS X V10.4 :: Apple Mail Does Not Download From Gmail

Mar 25, 2012

I just got back home after 10 weeks away.

When away I access gmail remotely. (From a non-mac portable PC)

I just turned on my mac at home and it will not find the 10 weks of saved messages on my gmail inbox account. 

All was well before I left in January and all other programs appear to be working. I have checked the mail preferences and seem to be OK. 

When I ask for new mail the activity indicator appears to work OK and the wheel goes for a while but no new mail appears in my inbox.

OS X :: Unable To Use Apple Mail With Gmail IMAP

Feb 6, 2009

I'm trying to use Apple Mail with a Gmail IMAP account but I'm about to give up. I used exactly the same settings suggested on the gmail site but the service works very bad. Messages take forever to download, often I click on them and the preview window starts spinning. It also hangs frequently while synching or caching and I have to do a force quit. Is somebody using this in a profitable way?

OS X :: Apple Mail App Not Work With Gmail Account

Nov 28, 2009

I have an iMac running Snow Leopard and I am trying to add my gmail account to the mail app and im entering the right password and username and I keep getting- "Logging in to the Gmail IMAP server [URL] failed. Make sure the user name and password you entered are correct, then click Continue. If the information isn't correct, you cannot receive messages." And my mail wont sync or anything. I tried with both imap and pop and neither work. In my gmail setting I have both pop and imap turned on so I dont get why im having a problem. My gmail account that I used to have on my account before I upgraded to snow leopard still works and my mobile me account works but I cant add any new gmail accounts. I've tried adding a few different gmail accounts and none will work.

for those of you using gmail with imap know, read and unread status's do not update for some reason w/out turning mail off then back on. i recently purchased a new (to me) intel macbook with snow leopard 10.6 and used mobileme to sync my mail accounts. what i noticed to my pleasant surprise is that my iphone, macbook, and gmail are all in perfect sync, BUT the g4 powermac with leopard and apple mail 3.6 still has a problem. is there any updates coming out, i find it hard to believe with the leopard updates still coming out they still haven't addressed this issue. are those of you with snow leopard experiencing the same perfect syncs with gmail read/unread status?

OS X :: Apple Mail 4 (GMAIL / IMAP) With GrowlMail

Jul 15, 2010

Installed Growl and GrowlMail today. Anyway, my gmail is configured with custom labels, which IMAP detects as "folders". For example, any time my gmail account gets a facebook mail, it labels the message as "Facebook". This is great, but GrowlMail shows TWO Growl messages. One for the message coming into "Inbox" and another to the message coming into the "Facebook" folder. This is my theory. Otherwise, I have no idea why I'm seeing multiple Growl alerts for emails that are moved/labeled.

I cannot log in to my iphone, ipad or Apple mail with my google credentials. I made sure everything was being typed in correctly. The weird thing is, I am able to log in using [URL]website.

I don't know why I am not able to check my email unless I use the website. I tried clearing the captcha and even changing my password in gmail.

Can anyone tell me why this would come out of nowhere? I have not changed any settings on any of my devices or even though gmail. What's going on?

Applications :: Unable To Receive Gmail While Using Apple Mail?

Dec 22, 2005

For the last week or two, my apple mail has no longer been receiving my gmail. I have done nothing to the preferences.

Has anyone else had this problem and would anyone know how to fix it?

All I can think is something may have changed on their servers in the UK since it changed to 'googlemail', however, I managed to get a 'gmail' address before the switch.

Applications :: Gmail - Apple Mail - IMAP - Can't See Messages

Feb 1, 2010

I have my Apple Mail configured for use with my Gmail IMAP account but I have a problem. From the Apple Mail app, I can not see messages that were sent while in the web version of Gmail. To me, if I have it configured via IMAP, anything I do on my phone, I should see on my mac. Anything I do on my mac, I should see anywhere from the web app. Am I doing something wrong? Can YOU see messages you sent through the web portal, on your Apple Mail app?
