Problem with adding my Gmail RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to add my Gmail account to my Windows Live Mail.  Every time I try to download my folders and such I get a pop up that says "The server has rejected your login.  Please verify that your user name and password are correct."  I have done this repeatedly and it still won't download.  It says validation failed, invalid credentials.  How do I fix this so it can download and receive mail?
