Gmail IMAP stops working (0x800CCCD1) – Clearing the CAPTCHA

Posted: May 7, 2009 in Computers and Internet

I’m not sure what triggers this need (perhaps too many wrong password attempts, or to many connections over a specific time period), but running a Google process of clearing the CAPTCHA worked for my issue.
