Regular Gmail synchronization issues:

Updated: As of lately Google has started disabling IMAP by default so I will show you how to turn it back on.

First click on the settings>See all settings button.

From this page please click on Forwarding and Pop/IMAP and then make sure IMAP is enabled.

Let's make sure that your 2-Step verification login is off and Allow less secure apps is on.

To do this login to your Google account and then click on your profile in the top right then click on Google account.

From this screen click on security and then you will see both options to make sure 2-step verification is off.

And then at the bottom of the page turn on less secure apps.
