    Can't "Manage" Gmail account in the Mail app.


    My gmail account is not syncing in the Mail app on my Surface Pro. When I click on the account in Manage Accounts under Settings, nothing happens. I would like to delete the account and re-add it. Please advise!

  4. Can't "Manage" Gmail account in the Mail app.

    Windows 10 Mail forgets Gmail password almost every day

    Reason

    Windows Mail app keeps prompting for Gmail account password frequently with the "your gmail settings are out of date" message—
    According to a comment on this post . . .

    Potential Solutions

    Based on some quick research there may be two options that may help resolve this. . .

    1. Enable the 2-Step Verification functionality and security feature with your Gmail account and then use the 2-Step Verification to verify and trust the Windows Mail app to have access to your Gmail account
    2. Enable and use the Less Secure Apps functionality by turning that ON and using your usual Gmail account password with the Windows Mail app to authenticate
