Cannot Get Mail - User Name Or Password Is Incorrect?


I keep receiving same error over and over again no matter what I try.

Cannot Get Mail

The user name or password for "imap.gmail.com" is incorrect.

Yet the information is correct since I'm able to connect to my e-mail using the safari browser and logging in the old fashioned way.

I have tried the reboot function.

Deleting and trying to recreate the account.

Resetting the WiFi connection and its settings.

Signed in and out of my account on Safari tried everything I can possibly think of.

Now every time I try to recreate the account it gives me this error and really not sure what to do.

Information:
apple ipad
iPhone OS 3.1.3

Cannot Get Mail Since The User Name Or Password Are Incorrect
I am trying to set up an account on my iPad, but just can't seem to get it to work. I already have other accounts set up and they work fine.

I enter all the correct information for using IMAP, etc. Then it tells me it cannot get mail since the user name or password are incorrect. They ARE correct. I have this account set up on my MacBook with no issues using all the same information.

So, using all the same set up and credentials I set this account up on my iPod Touch with no issues last night and it worked just fine. Today it isn't working the same. It is keeps telling me Secure Connection Failed.

Any ideas out there to help me out.

MacBook 2.0 GHz (Unibody) - iMac Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHz - Mac Mini Core 2 Duo

Gmail User Name Or Password Incorrect?
I am getting the above message for some reason. Things have been going along fine since I set the new iPad up. I had both exchange and the Gmail app getting mail and a few days ago turned off exchange mail since it just duplicated. Fine until this morning when I started getting this message.

I turned exchange email back on and my gmail shows up in that folder but not the Gmail. Any suggestions before I delete and redo the gmail one.

Gmail User Name And Password Shows Incorrect
I get the message 'User Name or PW for @gmail.com' is incorrect on the iPad only. Laptop and desktop work perfectly. Same for my other email accounts, including Yahoo.I've logged in and out of gmail.com on both the iPad and laptop. Also, I went to the email pref on the iPad, turned it off, and back on, all to no avail.One thing I've changed is upgrade to Snow Leopard yesterday pm. But again, all of my other email accounts work as usual, and I can have access to gmail.com through the web site.

Unable To Send Email / User Name Or Password Incorrect
I have had this same issue on the iPhone for a few years and now have it on the iPad. I have setup my personal account and can successfully receive email. However, sending email is problematic as it always incurs the error:

Cannot Send Mail
The user name or password for
"SMTP:<my email address>@<ISP's SMTP server>" is incorrect.

The user name for my email account is my email address (name@domainname.com) and the SMTP server is of the normal form mail.isps_domainname.com.

The error message suggests that Apple's mail utility is joining the username with the SMTP address with the @ being the conjunction. If it is doing this, it is wrong as it is screwing up the user name. Is there anyway to stop the Mail utility from doing this?

Information:
iPad
iOS 4

Adding Lycos Mail - "Cannot Get Mail-The Username Or Password For Pop.mail.lycos.com Is Incorrect"
I have two email accounts that I need to add to my Ipad.The first is a Gmail account which I had up and running in no time at all,quite easy to do actually. Unfortunately the same can't be said about my Lycos email account.I've tried several times to add my Lycos email account to my Ipad but with no success.I used the exact same method(Settings-Mail-Add Account)that I did when I added my Gmail account but like I said,no success.

I keep getting the same error message when I try to complete the process: "Cannot Get Mail-The username or password for pop.mail.lycos.com is incorrect."

This does not make any sense because I am entering the correct username and password. So having said all of that I was wondering if any other Lycos mail users out there have had the same problem in the past and how you fixed this problem? Or if anyone else knows how to rectify this issue? My Ipad is the 32g Wifi model.

IPad 2 :: Wi-Fi Password Is Incorrect And Set-up Has Stalled?
I just purchased my ipad 2 and began the set-up. I chose the correct wi-fi network, but input an incorrect password. Now I am unable to move forward. If I choose that wi-fi network, it won't prompt the password again. It seems as though it took the incorrect password and it needs to be changed. If I select my network, there is a "thinking circle" and I can't move forward on the set-up. Is there a way to go back and change the password so I can finish my set-up?

Says Password Is Incorrect When Updating Apps
I got the new iPad a few weeks ago and I have encountered a problem. Twice over the past week I have been notified that one of my apps has an update, but when I enter my password to log in it says my password is incorrect. I know I have entered the correct password. The 1st time this happened I ended up having to go through and change my password (this was just a couple of days ago). Today I was notified again that an app had an update and the same thing happened. I am entering my new correct password and I just keep getting the message saying that my password is incorrect. Has anyone had this problem?

Unable To Connect To Wifi Due To Incorrect Password
So I'm sitting here at the car dealer getting some service done and they have a sign indicating free wifi Internet service.

Nice. So I try to log on with the iPad...15 times. I think maybe I'm typing the password in wrong or they changed it so I try on the iPhone. Works the first time. I am still unable to connect...it says incorrect password.

Is this the wifi problem wveryones been talking about or am I missing something? Any suggestions?

MobileMe Sync Failed - Password Is Incorrect?
I signed up for MobilMe when I received my iPad last Friday from Apple. I decided quickly that I did not want it so I canceled it after a couple of days, but not before I set it up to work with my iPhone and my iPad.

I removed the MobilMe account from both devices and my iPad is fine, but on my iPhone EVERY time I make a change to a contact or add a new one I get a message that "MobilMe Sync Failed - The password for the MobilMe user "xxxxx" is incorrect."

IPAD 2 Is Blocked - Changed Password Is Incorrect
I can access my hotmail account fine on my laptop having recently changed my password due to one of the linked accounts on it being hacked. Now my IPAD 2 is blocked! On the screen when I switch it on is a blue box which states password incorrect enter the password for the Hotmail account "Hotmail" with the white box to enter the password and the options cancel or ok. I have entered the new and old passwords dozens of times and pressed okay. Also pressed cancel in an effort to remove the blue box to allow me to use the IPad without accessing hotmail but I cannot get past the blue sign in box.

Username Or Password Is Incorrect, Can't Add Email Account
I've set up my iCloud and iTunes accounts with no bother but I can't get my emails to work. I've entered all the details as instructed (and as I did before successfully on my iPad and iPhone) but I get a message saying my username or password is incorrect. It's most definitely not as I have checked and checked and checked. I have no problems accessing my mail over the website and my phone is still attached to the account, but my iPad will not accept my username and password! I've deleted and re-added the account countless times and saved the account and triple checked all the settings which are all completely correct

Password Incorrect For All Gmail Accounts On IPad 2?
I picked up the new iPad this morning from the Apple Store. Since I already have an iPad 2 at home, I opted to do the set-up at home. Came home, backed up the old iPad 2 via iCloud, restored it to factory settings (I'm giving it away) and then powered up the new iPad and restored from the backup. Everything went perfectly, except for my email accounts, which all had the passwords wiped out. I've gone into the accounts and re-entered the passwords.

But none of the Gmail accounts are working. I consistently get the message that the "user name or password are incorrect." But I have double, triple and quadruple-checked that I have the correct info. I have even tried deleting the account from the iPad altogether and then re-entering all of the information according to the instructions provided by Google/Gmail. No luck. I've gone to Gmail and confirmed that it is set to IMAP.

An Error Saying Address Or Password For Smtp.gmail.com Is Incorrect?
I can't get the Mail app to work. I tap on the gmail. I type. In all the info like my name, address, password and I get an error saying address or password for smtp.gmail.com is incorrect, so I'm thinking I mistyped something, except what I typed was right. My apple I'd is the same as my email so I type it a lot, so I doubt I'm mistyping it, I downloaded a gmail app from iTunes and it still didn't work, so I tried to access my email from my iPad (safari) still didn't work. But on my laptop it works and I signed in here, so I am typing it right. Maybe it's my iPad, maybe I need to restore it. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Multiple User - Have Same Password
I'm finding it hard to get clear in my mind what is possible with this device, I'd be grateful for some help. I would want to receive / send emails using two accounts, johndoe@mac.com and janedoe@mac.com (aka me.com). There is only one mobileme subscription, johndoe, and janedoe is (if I've got this right) a sort of synonym. Both use the same password (not a problem). On my iMac, you can log in as either on the web and just see "your own" stuff. They can be shown as separate accounts in Mail and supply "their own" sending address when sending. So far so good. Now we (for it is I and my spouse of whom I speak) want to know if this will all work on iPad. I have found this http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=12187387&#12187387 but I don't get the references to Hotmail etc. I also saw a phrase about Mobileme not being useable on iPad? Don't know what that's about.

How To Purge Incorrect Address From Mail App On It
I have entered a bad address for my husband, thinking it was his correct email address. I finally figured out it was wrong (there was an extra letter in it) and I changed it in contacts to correct it (Mobile Me corrected it on all my devices). Now when I type in his name to send him an e-mail, iPad keeps wanting to send it to the old incorrect address, instead of the corrected address shown in contacts. How I can purge the incorrect address from the mail program. Both are showing if you scroll down the list, but the incorrect one comes up first.
