    Question DroidX + Gmail (via IMAP) = Authentication Error

    Starting yesterday, I began getting an "Authentication Error" on the email account I set up for gmail using IMAP. I tried deleting the account and re-creating it, but I can't get past the "Authentication Error".

    My incoming settings:
    Server: imap.gmail.com
    Port: 993
    Use secure connection: checked
    Verify Certificate: checked

    My outgoing settings:
    SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
    Port: 465
    Use secure connection: checked
    Verify Certificate: checked

    Are my setting wrong?
    Thanks, JT

    I guess my settings were ok, and Einstein would categorize me as insane. Because now, after changing nothing, suddenly I can send/receive mail from that gmail account using IMAP.

    Go figure.

    It gives me that error once in a while too. I just type in my password and it's okay again.

    I get that occasionally as well (3 different Gmail accounts).

    I have Verify Certificate: UN-checked and it seems to work better.
