    Alright, here's the deal. After the update, I began receiving an error message when trying to access my GMail account via my iPhone:

    "Cannot Get Mail: Username and Password not accepted".

    I tried deleting the account, readding it, setting it up via POP setup rather than GMail setup, etc. No dice. Finally stumbled across https://www.google.com/accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha

    That seems to fix it, but only for a short time, then we're right back to not being able to access my mail.

    Other GMail accounts seem to work fine through the phone.

    Does anyone have any ideas here? Apple couldn't help me and Google doesn't respond...

    Thanks very much, I'm teetering on the edge here-
    Ryan

    not sure if this helps, but i kinda had the same problem, so i turned "recent mode" back on, then it worked fine, yes i get the duplicate email sent back to me.. but at least its working. and also try to power off the phone and turn back on. hope that helps.

    re-enter your password in the mail settings under account.
