    just randomly started happening this morning

    "Cannot get mail. The user name or password for "imap.gmail.com" is incorrect"

    I haven't changed a thing lol. Searched on the forums here and it said to log into gmail on my computer, disable imap, save, then re-enable it and it should work again but no luck

    You need to go to your gmail account and turn a setting on. It's sth like SMS, sorry I do not remember the exact name.

    its a bug, just turn off the phone and restart, it should fix the problem.
