Not receiving email. Once in a while, your (sometimes referred to as 'Apple Mail' or 'Mac Mail'), stops receiving new mail. You may be able to verify that you are getting new mail via webmail, another email client or computer, or even via a mobile phone. When this happens, the fix is extraordinarily easy!

“Enter the password for the account “(null)”: Google requires completing authentication in Safari.” This takes users to a Google web login form.

In the meantime, you can try the following fixes:

1– Changing your Gmail account’s security settings may fix this problem. Open Google’s My Account site ( and click Security (On the left navigation panel) and then scroll down and find the “Less secure app access” section and turn this on (note that Google recommends this OFF).
