My Gmail account that I have used in Apple Mail for over one year has stopped working.  Mid-February I received a notification that someone had tried to hack my Gmail acount, so I had to create a new password.  Since then, my Gmail account in Apple Mail has gone offline and will not go back online, even when I enter the new, correct password. 


I deleted the account and tried to re-add it, it says the account info is incorrect - what do I do?

MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
