More than one Gmail imap account in Apple-Mail?

Asked by jeschge (128points) February 22nd, 2010

hi there,
i tried to setup a second gmail-imap-account in Apple Mail (v. 4.2), but it doesn’t seem to work. the account settings are exactly the same and username/password are definitely correct.
is there a general rule/limit by Apple or Gmail?

thanks anyway

Nope, no limit. I have 3 myself. What error are you getting?

“Unable to Connect

There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Verify the settings for account “xyz” or try again.

The server returned the error: Web login required. (Failure)”

you know what that means?!

okay, that was something i did not expect:

gmail blocked any imap-connection because i did not use the account for a couple of months – problem solved!
