Not working. I went to the Preferences in iPhoto, and put in the various info for my gmail account. It shows in the drop down menu. When I select a picture to email it says "The email server did not recognize the username or password combination". I did not attach "gmail.com" in the "user name" box. I copied the keychain entries for user name and password right from Keychain Access. I have gmail working in Mail, perfectly. Anyone know what is wrong? Thanks.

    Today I discovered that I have the same problem as you. I already deleted my gmail account and activated it again a couple of times and still not working.

    Anybody can help?

    figured it out!


    Open iPhoto

    Click the iPhoto menu in the upper left hand corner of the screen

    Click Preferences

    Click the General tab

    Next to "Email photos using"......have you selected the mail application that you want to use?

    Click the Accounts tab to verify that the settings for your mail application are entered here.


    the last step is crucial--my account info was incorrect in iphoto. so i fixed it and it works now!
