I have tried numerous times to get the Win8 mail app to sync with my gmail account. It keeps telling me "Unable to connect. Ensure the information you entered is correct." To make sure that I was entering the correct login and password, I used Explorer to access gmail and logged in with no problem.
I use gmail to consolidate emails from several different e-addresses, including the one I use to access Microsoft. (Call it my primary e-address.) I'd first tried to set that one up, but specified the wrong kind of server (POP). M'soft sent me a note asking me to verify my primary. I did. (M'soft's note was forwarded from my primary to my gmail account.) Nothing changed. I still could not sync my gmail account. I'm wondering whether, if I mistyped something earlier, it was cached and won't go away without a reboot. I've run out of ideas. Help!
