    If I wanted to change the password for the account synced with the Droid, what would I have to do to make that work?

    Also, what would happen if I just changed it from the web interface?

    My first post! :D

    I was in a situation where I had to do this. I lent a friend my iPod Touch to try for a few weeks... I then realized my GMAIL account was on it!

    So...

    1.) Web interface: Changed the GMAIL pword.
    2.) On the Droid: Launched the GMAIL app -wouldn't sync. Good.
    3.) Searched thru the GMAIL app to reset to my new pword. No luck.
    4.) Noticed a new notification, swiped it down, viola! Enter new pword!

    In short, don't look in the app itself to change the pword, rather expect a notification to re-enter the pword!

    Hope that helps...
