Windows 8 mail, Gmail error Unable to connect. Ensure the information you've entered is correct
I have been trying to set up a gmail account on windows 8 mail for sometime. It was working before, but then I had to re-install the app and I cannot get it to connect now. The only difference between now and when it worked is that I had turned on google+
after I had it working the first time, but now I have turned that off.
I consistently get this error: Unable to connect. Ensure the information you've entered is correct.
If I get lucky and it does manage to add the account, then the syncing takes a long time and emails take 5-10 minutes longer to arrive on the app than it does to arrive on my account in a web browser and on my phone.
Many users are complaining about this, we really need a solid answer here.
