I’m a pretty big fan of Gmail (yes, I know, the Gmail Man is reading my email), but I was having some problems this evening. I went to check my mail on my iPad and I got an error message saying “Cannot Access Mail” and saying the the username or password was incorrect.
I freaked out a little bit thinking maybe my account got hacked or something, but I was able to log in fine on the web.
I’m still not sure what the cause was, but I did find a fix; go to this site, enter your password, and fill out the captcha. Viola! you can IMAP your Gmail.
Thanks to shaheerk over at the Google support forums for this fix.
I know it’s been a while since I posted, but that is one benefit of having no readers; it doesn’t matter how long I go between posts.
