Apple Mail not connecting to G-mail?

Within the last 10 minutes, Apple Mail has suddenly lost the ability to connect with my G-mail account and retrieve mail.

I get the standard error:

Quote:
This account (G-Mail) appears to be offline due to a network problem. Would you like to try go online now?
But it will not seem to re-connect for anything. I checked, and G-mail is working just fine in my web browser, but any idea why Mail can't connect all of a sudden?

Dont be so paranoid.... maybe their pop server is down. Wait a few and try again. If it was working just fine before, and it just stopped, they probly just have an interruption in service. Try back in 2 hours.

I had the same problem. It seems to be working fine now, though. Probably just a temporary glitch with GMail's POP servers.

I'm just letting it sit and using the online G-Mail right now, but it should be back shortly.

It's still not connecting. Do you think there may be a problem? Should I try setting up my G-mail account in Mail again?

If nothing else works that's worth a try.

Yep. It's still not working. It'll send, but not receive. I'll try re-setting the account.

Mail randomly going offline

I've been getting a similar issue for a while - using Mountain Lion and IMAP to 2 seperate Gmail accounts. Every so often (no pattern yet observed) one or the other or both go "offline". The only way to get them back is to quit Mail and restart. While the accounts are "offline" on my MBP they are fine from either my iPhone or my iPad so its not the Gmail end...
Any ideas?

I'm not even able to get there! I went into Settings in my Gmail account and 'Enabled IMAP'. Then I opened Apple Mail on my iMac and tried adding a gmail account. It won't even acknowledge my username and password! I've tried EVERY way to be able to add this Gmail account to my Apple Mail... but no success. Any help out there? Thank you.
