    hi ppl, about 30 mins ago my mail app and googlemail were working perfectly then all of a sudden i got a message saying "The user name and password specified in Mail preferences were not accepted by the server"
    now i know everything is correct as i even changed the password just to make sure, and logging in via web gmail works fine, im completely stumped.....

    The same ting happened to me too. I had to delete my mail preferences, and sign up my pop mail again. I do hope that gmail fixes this problem pronto, because it's quite annoying!!
