All of a sudden I cannot log in to gmail in windows live. Error message says 'server rejected my log in'. I have tried many online fixes but they do not work. I have deleted and reloaded the account but now cannot download any imap folders. Any help appreciated.
Hi, I have tried the following.
Deleted and reset the account.
Ensured imap selected.
Checked to allow all apps. Ran windows live repair.
I have another gmail email address and that seems to be alright.
Do you mean you've enabled Gmail's "Less-secure Apps" feature? It's an essential requirement for most desktop email clients. Here's a link if you need it.
Do you have Google's "2-Step Verification" turned on? If you have then your regular Gmail password won't work in most email clients. In that case you'll need to generate an "App password" and use that instead in Windows Live Mail. Here's another link for you.
The problem is happening not only with you but also with many, and with me also. I was trying to sync my HP support assistant account with the Windows live mail server, but can not sync that. IT says there is something missing in that.
