What are we doing wrong?

Forgot to mention that Messages also won't let me use my gmail account on the iPad. When I tried to set it up in System Preferences, I get the message "Unable to verify email because it is already in use." I had to use my hotmail that I don't really use anymore.
I had to enter into Messenger preferences all the email addresses we both use and then give the system time to sort them out, even if they individually seemed to verify. About the unable to verify message you got, I find that if I access email on one of my devices then I have to wait a few minutes before I can access that same account from another device.
