    Today, I changed the password of my Gmail account on a PC computer in a public library. Afterwards, I was/am unable to log into my Gmail account to check the messages via SL 10.6.4's Mail client. I have an April 2010 13" MBP.

    Similarly, I was/am unable to log into my Gmail account via the Mail client on my 16 GB, 3G iPad, or the 32 GB, 3rd Gen iPod Touch.:confused:

    I keep getting the error message that either the user name or the password is wrong!

    I checked and re-checked, but I did NOT see anything wrong? :confused:

    The funny thing is that I could log into my Gmail account via Safari on ALL three devices, but NOT via the Mail client on the three devices!

    I am a new Mac user. Could someone please help!

    Thanks!

    I have a similar problem. I could not get one of my Gmail accounts to set up properly in the Mail applications. I don't remember changing the password, but it did start having problems when the @googlemail.com was changed to @gmail.com.

    You have to go to Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars, tap on the Gmail account, and then update the password for both incoming and outgoing. This will need to be done manually on each device.
