Question iPhone 4S Cannot Get Mail

All of my email accounts on the iPhone 4s get the same popup message:

No password provided for

Please go to Mail Account Settings
and enter a password.
I've entered the PW many times, and the message will not stop.
My emails are not flowing either way.

Thumbs up

Solved!

All accounts, except Google, were fixed by deleteing the accounts and re-adding them on the iPhone. The transfer from the iPod Touch, via iTunes backup, must have left some bad pointers...

With GMail, I forgot I had added Application Specific passwords, from when my account was hacked...

All fixed now
