    Authentication error in gmail...?

    Is any body else having problems with gmail account? i have two and both keep giving me authentication error.
    this is the 3rd time in a week. so far it keeps fixing on its own but its VERY annoying what could be causing it?
    the first time i went as far as removing the main email account so i could maybe start over...i wasnt able to add it back for 2 days...until it just all of a sudden allowed me to.

    The only thing I've found regarding authentication in Gmail is the following found in another thread:
    Update:
    Turns out I needed to do the unlock CAPTCHA thing:
    Google
    accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha

    EDIT: I see now what happened... The link was supposed to be https://www.google.com/accounts/UnlockCaptcha, but for some reason it got truncated as you see above. Thanks for the corrected link, penut_gallery!

    Give it a shot and let us know.

    Thanks.

    Tax payers have bailed out the banks which issue the credit cards so, imho, it's no joke!

    btw, I've looked for this unlock CAPTCHA thing and am not finding it. I don't have any authentication errors, I'm just nosey. Is it under Gmail>Menu>More>Settings>your gmail acct. Because I'm not finding it there.
