If Gmail Is Not Working After macOS (Mojave / Catalina) Upgrade

If you get prompted for your user credentials and your Gmail account is listed offline, your email user name probably contains a "dot". To fix the problem, remove the "dot" from the name so e.g. java.duke@gmail.com becomes javaduke@gmail.com.

You don't have to change anything in your gmail account, just remove the dot in the macOS Mail app. Dots don't matter in Gmail addresses.

Or just reenter the login details once, and it should be fine after that.

That works too.
