    Mail does not remember Gmail password …
    When I reopen Mail (4.4) after it has been shut, it fails to remember my password for gmail. I get the prompt box “Enter password for account etc etc”. When I enter the password into this box the messages go out OK.

    Mail does not have this problem when receiving e-mails to my Gmail account

    My various other accounts (non gmail) are not affected

    My wife’s gmail e-mail account on the same computer is not affected and is working normally; that is to say, Mail duly remembers her password, as it had done with mine until recently.

    Any ideas, pse?

    Probably a good thing as gmail is that insecure it is quite easy to crack. Trust you have a mixed numeric.alphabetic password? If you do a Google you will find many, many reports on this:-
