I am also having the same exact issue. Coincidence that it's occurring so
suddenly to multiple people where I could find no mention of it previously?
The account I'm having the error on is one of two Gmail accounts (out of
four total accounts in use.
Here's my exact error message track:
1) "Your IMAP server wishes to alert you to the following: Invalid
2) "The server has rejected your login. Please verify that your username
and password are correct. "
3) Windows Security login dialog: "Logon to Gmail powerbumbler"
4) Repeat 'Ad Nauseum'
It works fine until it doesn't.....
