    so yesterday when i was browsing gmail in my mail app it was working fine then all of a sudden it just stopped, so i tryed fixing around the problem and still couldn't get it to work so i deleted it and re added it back now it says, the user name or password is incorrect when i didn't change anything.

    anyone know how to resolve this?

    Your post is quite confusing.

    -What does "it just stopped" mean?
    -What does "fixing around the problem" mean?
    -What does "i deleted it" mean? You deleted what?
    -What does "re added it back" mean? What did you add back?
    -How can you say "i didn't change anything" when you clearly did change many things?

    if you are using POP3 then just go to ur actual gmail account and fix the settings? try that out.
