I think I may have the answer to this one. Been having the same problem myself, after accidentally signing out of EasyConnect on my Mac. Google mail offers a two-step authentication setup to protect your email account from hacking. This is not supported by all devices, so as a result you have to generate a password for each device. This is done in Gmails account settings. Once you have generated a password, be sure to input it into both computer AND iOS device before leaving the page, as the password is only displayed once. (If you missed this step, then don´t worry - just generate another one and try again ;)) This solved the problem for me.
