    How and where did you change the password?
    When i go into my account settings (also G-mail) i only get two options:
    a) change sync settings (nothing about changing password in here), and
    b) delete account
    It's in the tutorial link in post #6 above. "See the diagram in step 4 of
    Change Mailbox Sync Settings for Mail app - TenForumsTutorials"

    @Try3
    I saw the tutorial, but I don't have those options.
    In the turotial diagram step 4, the bottom option clearly states "change your password or other account settings".
    My bottom option is "delete account" (see attached screenshot).
    I'm curious how ecbritz managed to change his password.

    Damun,

    I suggest you post that question in the tutorial thread because people who know the mail app will see it there and it could lead to the tutorial being updated.

    Will do.
    I only noticed this as i was trying to help the thread starter in this thread, so i'm not in need for a solution right now.
    I would just like to know, so when i change my Gmail password in the future i know what to do.
    As @ecbritz somehow managed to change the password for Gmail in the Windows Mail app i was hoping that he/she would share the solution and maybe then the soultion could be added to the tutorial.

    Edit:
    Since the tutorial thread is titled "Change Mailbox Sync Settings for Mail app in Windows 10" maybe i shouldn't post this there since this issue is changing the password.

    If you have set up the gmail account with the option "other account, imap, pop" you can change the password.

    If you have configured the gmail account with the option "google icon, google" you cannot change the password. You have to delete the account to configure with the new password.

    Thanks, this is good to know.
    And it also makes sense in my case as i did set my mail up by clicking the google icon.
