Cannot forward emails from Apple Mail to Gmail

Postby Newbey on Wed Oct 14, 2015 2:25 pm

I have a Apple Mail account on my laptop and wanted to forward an email to my Gmail account.

When I try to forward the email I get an error message

"Can't connect to the account "Exetel". Enter the password for user "my Gmail email name"

However I am confused. I tried all my Exetel and Gmail passwords and none seem to work. Just get message "unable to verify account name or passwords".

Is it an Exetel or Gmail password required and how do I find out what it is?

Thanks for any assistance/clarification.

Regards,

Graham

Hi Graham,
Can you attach print screens here?

1. By the time you get the error message on screen
2. Email account settings page on your Laptop.

You may hide any information that you don't like to provide, before pasting the screen captures. Ex - user "my Gmail email name"
