    I highly recommend installing K-9 Mail to replace both stock email apps. When you first open it, it will ask you for your email address and password. If you enter your Gmail info, it will set it up as an IMAP acct by default. You can go in and manually change it POP3 at any time.

    Hi Joe,

    I have installed K9 but I get the same error message with that too:

    Username or password incorrect.

    I know my username and password are right as I have logged in an out of gmail okay.

    I have a droid and it uses my gmail account as the main account for marketplace etc is this the problem?

    I and trying this over WIFI.

    Please help

    Thanks

    Paul

    Are you entering your username as:

    username

    or

    username @gmail.com

    I'm having the same issue. I'm able to log into gmail from the gmail app and the web, but neither the stock mail app or k9 are able to connect. I have tried my username with both @ gmail and without and I'm getting the same error. I was able to log in with both apps last night and now suddenly I can't.

    any one have a fix for this yet? I'm getting this error using k9 and the standard email app on my incredible. It's working fine on the built in gmail app.

    I should qualify this more.

    Running Incredible
    imap account through google apps (not just gmail)
    I've tried my username both as @#!#$ and #%#@aaaa.com
    absolutely positive all settings are correct for outgoing server, imap.gmail.com (even tried imap.googlemail.com), ssl, port 993
