    I use windows 8 (64 bit) and I have a gmail account. I haven't been able to get my account set up at all using the google or outlook accounts you can add via Mail. I just turned off my google+ account yesterday which some people have suggested could be the cause.
    The error I get is: Unable to connect. Ensure the information you've entered is correct.

    Are you trying to add gmail email account to Windows 8 mail app? Should be pretty straight forward. Take a look here - it worked for me.

    It just now added my gmail account, I guess it was still due to the google+ thing or something.
    Thanks!

    Alright...I've noticed that my synchronizing is incredibly slow now...but it appears to be affecting my windows live account as well. I don't think its the network, but I will have to check once I can get back to my home network.
