    Gmail problems on my imac
    Everything has been fine for some time on my IMAC but in the last few days the Gmail accounts don't seem to remember their passwords and I can't log into my preferences, accounts, gmail and change the passwords. I go to mail, preferences, select an account and go to server settings and it just says offline. What am I not doing right?

    You do not say what version of OS X you are using but others have been having the same issue. Check out this post:

    Problem getting e-mail in Apple Mail

    Some have had to delete and reinstall their gmail accounts. It seems to be an issue with the latest update to Mohave.

    Recommend using Onyx to clean your Mac.

    I am guessing that you are having this problem 'cos you have update to Mojave 10.14.4. There are now 49 pages on the Apple Community Support website on this subject. My gmail seems to be working fine most of the time since I deleted it and reinstalled it, although I do still occasionally get a failed login message. For other Apple devices I use the gmail app.

    It is unsatisfactory that there hasn't been any formal explanation by Apple as to why so many people are having problems with this.
