    I cannot log in to my iphone, ipad or Apple mail with my google credentials. I made sure everything was being typed in correctly. The weird thing is, I am able to log in using website. I don't know why I am not able to check my email unless I use the website. I tried clearing the captcha and even changing my password in gmail. Can anyone tell me why this would come out of nowhere? I have not changed any settings on any of my devices or even though gmail. What's going on? This is very frustrating.

    Did you sign into and set the appropriate settings? Gmail will not work with Mail clients until a few settings are set in the Options menu:

    You probably have something wrong in the settings, either SMTP or IMAP. Is IMAP enabled in GMail? Did you configure the account correctly? Try posting relevant information and it's a lot easier to help you.
