    I have three mail accounts: a local POP account, an Apple cloud account and a Gmail account. All three are, naturally, nested in my Mail app on my iPhone 4S, iPad2 and iMac (running Mountain Lion).

    Yesterday evening as I was checking mail messages I noticed my Gmail account had disappeared from The Mail app on my iPhone! In Settings, the account was still listed, password and all. But, no inbox, no nothing in the Mail app.

    Checked with my iPad and iMac and both remained unchanged, Gmail was where I would expect it to be. On the phone I tried deleting the account and reinstalling, but it would not recognize my password. I went through the steps to change the password and still it would not install! So, I downloaded the GMail app. That gets me by, but what the heck just happened? Anyone else experience this?

    I am running IOS7 on the iPhone and iPad.

    I believe Google has changed all of their different accounts and they don't offer Gmail in the mail account of the iphone anymore, IIRC. I think you have to use the app now.

    That has been my experience. I downloaded a third party app so I could have all my mail in in one place.

    I'm on the latest version of iOS7 and have the Google option in the mail accounts setup. When you start the process it says Gmail. I also have a Gmail account set up that way.

    Would that be why when I set up my Gmail account on my iPhone 4s any new emails can not be retrieved? The email address are correct because the account is verified. Nut when checking for new emails there is a screen reading that is like the user name or password is incorrect.

    That is exactly what I experienced when I tried to re-establish the gmail account within the Mail program.

    Thank you for that link. Perhaps I got such a message from Google last year. Don't recall it. I appreciate the feedback!

    You're welcome. I don't remember getting the email either. I recalled seeing this thread lately and knew there was something up with new changes. I don't use my gmail account very often, so I haven't updated it.

    Do a google search for gmail password lockout captcha. There is a glitch that locks you out of gmail and you have to resign with captcha. I believe it has to be done online and not on your phone.
