    Default Setting up Gmail: PW invalid (but it is!)

    I received a warranty replacement for my Torch yesterday and can't add gmail (not the app) as an e-mail account. My device is telling me my password is invalid when it is not. I'm not sure if this is a Torch error or not, but I have never had a similar problem on my Bold, Curve, Pearl Flip or Pearl.

    Thoughts?

    EDIT:
    Title should read "(but it isn't!)"

    Is it a gmail account or a Google Apps account?

    Whilst you may be answering that, I'll go search my past posts for the answer

    Try one of these from your Desktop Browser:
    Gmail account:
    https://www.google.com/accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha

    Google apps account, you'll have to copy/paste and change as necessary:
    Code:
    https://www.google.com/a/YOUR_DOMAIN_NAME_HERE/UnlockCaptcha

    I had a similar issue with a gmail account on my friends phone, and it turned out the gmail account had been hi-jacked! So after going through the recovery options, he finally got his account back luckily.

    Make sure your gmail "All Mail" label is checked to be available on IMAP.

    For anyone who comes across this issue after looking all over the Interwebernets without the real answer, here it is... It's actually Google that isn't trusting the login. You simply have to enable app trusting and connect within 10minutes to add the Blackberry connection. Because this is a newer security setting that is why you didn't have to do this in the past. This is obviously missing from Google's POP and IMAP configuration guides for Crackberries.
