Windows 8 mail App can't sync



I have a problem with Windows 8 mail app. I installed Windows 8 and konfigured mail app for my gmail without any problems. When I then close the app and reopen it, the password is changed somehow to something with 8 chars. I have removed the account af made a new one with the exactly information and correct information I need to make it Work, and it Works everytim....that is until I close the app and open it Again. Then the password is changed Again and it wont sync Again hehe.

I only use IMAP and have used Imap on my android phones, Iphones, laptops and desktop computers always, so can't be POP3 issues.


Anyone got an idea to what I can do to make it keep my password?
