Aug 07, 2019  Does anyone have the exact procedure for installing Gmail on OL 2019? I have not been able to get it working after many days of trying. I have an application password, turned off & on 2FA, tried several different instructions from various web sites. I've also tried to set it up using the Outlook 2016 set-up on the control panel.

I have a macbook air - Mac OS X Version 10.6.8. I had my gmail account and opt online account working via the mail app and then I changed the password on the gmail account. I logged in via my iphone and no issues. Once I tried to use gmail on the macbook air it did not receive any messages. I tried to go into preferences and change the password and it is not recognizing the username or password. The outgoing server is always offline. I do not know how to get this connected. I can access my gmail account via the web gmail and on my iphone, just not the macbook air that worked perfectly prior to the password change. I even went into keychain and deleted the gmail lines and started over- deleted the gmail account and optonline account and then tried to open the gmail account under the mail app- all to no avail.

Several people are experiencing issues with Gmail (especially G Suite) email accounts in Mail on Mac. It seems that the Mail App is not working as expected for some Gmail users. More specifically, some Gmail users have said that after installing the macOS 10.14.4, and launching the Mail app, some Gmail users are asked to authenticate their email addresses. They get a notification saying:

Apr 07, 2017  macOS has a feature called “Gatekeeper” designed to lock down your Mac, forcing it to only run Apple-approved software by default. But a Mac is locked down in the same way Android is locked down–you’re still free to run any application you want. Gatekeeper works a little differently depending on which version of macOS you’re running. How to unblock my browser.

“Enter the password for the account “(null)”: Google requires completing authentication in Safari.” This takes users to a Google web login form. However, shortly after authenticating, the Mail app asks for authentication once again, and again, as the process does not stick and goes into an endless loop.

Please note that we contacted Apple regarding this issue, and we were told that Apple is currently working on a fix.

In the meantime, you can try the following fixes:
