Can't login to some accounts using web browser jmello.ric 8/9/12 10:37 AM
I noticed today that I am unable to log into a couple of my accounts using the web interface. I can using the same account login using Apple Mail running under Mountain Lion. This seems to prove that I know my account and password. Why can't I use it on the web interface.

Take Care,
Jack

What is the exact message received when trying to log into that account (using https://mail.google.com/)?

What options does it provide for account recovery (what URLs are you sent to), and what happens when they are used?  How many times has account recovery been attempted?  What replies did you get from Google?

This seems to prove that I know my account and password.

Or that it's configured with an application specific password and doesn't use your current password.
