  3. 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    Windows Mail app keeps prompting for Gmail account password frequently with the "your gmail settings are out of date" message—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

    Mail App and Gmail

    Go to the MS Store and update Apps. Go to Settings > Apps > Apps & features > Mail and Calendar > Advanced Options > Reset.
    You can also Reinstall.
    I would also go to your Gmail Account via Web Mail and see to settings pages, as they are updating Gmail.

    Gmail works correctly here with Windows 10 Mail, after the 1803 version update, but of course probably a different mail server.
