Not able to read messages from GMAIL

Asked by Palak Mathur

I have configured my emacs to setup VM. I am successfully able to send emails. However, while reading mails, it fails. I get following error:

vm-imap-make-session: Need password for <email address hidden> [Inbox] for general operation.

Please help.

Hello, I haven't seen your query till now.

Usually typing `g' (vm-get-new-mail) queries for password and then you can proceed.

If still can't get it to work, your best bet is to do M-x vm-submit-bug-report, and explain as best as you can the exact sequence of events.

I provided my password using 'g'. However, I still cannot see any emails.
