    Hi all

    Ive been running my SP4 for a few weeks and Ive noted that the Mail app keeps prompting me for a password for my Gmail account.

    I have gmail setup with 2-step authentication. I have tried setting up an app specific password for Mail but it moans and asks me to enter my real password and a unique code. Mail then works OK for a day and then fails to login and requires me to authenticate again.

    Anyone else seeing this issue?
