I am unable to access my e-mail using Windows Live Mail 2012.   I keep getting the following error message:  "The server has rejected your login.  Please verify that your user name and password are correct."  I am able to log-in to Gmail using my browser so I know the correct user name and password.  I have verified that all the settings for Gmail are correct for use with Windows Live Mail 2012.  I've tried every "fix" suggested in the Help section but I continue to receive the same message..

Apparently, the sequence suggested and the results found have been totally changed by Google.  The suggested fix no longer shows access for less secure apps.

I am having the same problem. I would like to be able to check all 3 of my email accounts in 1 place instead of switching to the gmail app to check this account. I have checked all of the admin settings which show myself as the super admin for all functions (i am the only one on the account). Is there some other place to change these settings?

Google update recently and has completely screwed up my Live Mail account and can no longer access my emails. Any bright ideas? Have checked allow the "less secure items" option to no avail.
