    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.

    AWESOME!! Glad to be of service. The invoice will arrive in your mail in 2-3 business days. I take Visa, MC, AMEX, but no Discover... Personal checks are also not accepted. :blink: (Just kidding) :blink:

    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.

    yeah i couldnt find it either so i did what i always do...google is awesome...
    i pasted >google [FONT=Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha< in the search bar and it gave me some results where i could find the solution to my ongoing problem. a month of frustration was fixed in few minutes :)
    all thanks to FoxKat:) my hero:) and Google...which technically caused the problem...
