Why the application can't login to my GMAIL account?

If you cannot login to your gmail account, you may have to enable access at https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps. Even if you enable the previous setting, your connection to gmail will still be encrypted, provided that you connect to port 993 of imap.gmail.com.

Also, if you are trying to connect from a new IP, such as a VPS/VPC, you may need to login manually to gmail through a browser and complete any verification that google might require.

Check also your emails for a message from google, where they may say that they have blocked access from the new IP, until you confirm that you are the owner of the account and you are indeed the one using the new IP.
