    Mail Error Code:0x80072745 (trying to sync a gmail account)


    Okay

    Windows ten user forever. Did the Anniversary Update. This caused about 1/2 my apps and programs to stop working correctly. Followed the (way too many) instructions at the Microsoft site. Killed the system to the point where I wiped the drive, reinstalled the original, did the Anniversary update BEFORE anything else. All is good...except for the Gmail account, which throws this error when I try to sync the account:

    Something went wrong (no s**t!)
    We're having a problem downloading messages. Make sure you have a connection (yes, I do) and your account info is correct (yes), and then try again (like 30 times or so).

    Error code: 0x80072745

    I know, just use Gmail...but I'm too damned stubborn for that (which is why I had to reload my entire OS in the first place).

    Any suggestions (other than what I just said) would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for reading!!!

    Do you have two step authentication on your gmail account? If so then the email account may require an app specific password.

    Hmmm...Don't believe that I do, but thank you...I really appreciate the response. I will verify that I do not have the two step. One thing I failed to mention (sorry) was that the gmail account DID work prior to the AU being installed...I guess I should have known better...LOL

    Thanks Again!

    My Best,
