    Has anyone else been having the issue of Mac Mail not connecting to Gmail? I don't know how many times I have added and deleted the account in internet accounts without it working. I go through the steps via Internet Accounts, enter in my login (no two-step verification), select the apps I want to use the account with (Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Messages, Notes)(Mind you I only select Mail and Calendar) click Done, the select the apps.... box doesn't disappear but get a notification saying "Google Account Added" with an option of "Not Now" or "Turn On". I click Turn On then go into Mail and it says Gmail cannot connect. Has anyone else have had this problem? If so, how do you fix it?

    My Mac Mail has been doing similarly weird things since El Capitan - tiresome - will let you know if I stumble across a solution. Good luck!
