What? You got Gmail and you cannot add another generic mail? Works for me. Check if Server etc is right.

I mean when I add a new "General Email" from the account setting. I type in email address(which is gmail in this case) then password. then create it. then fail. and I check my computer gmail sent me a notice say they block a unauthorize access for my email (which is the moment I try to add this gmail to my Jolla as "General Email")

P.S. (In the last two version of Sailfish OS, it works, But I remove the rest "Genaral email" after that) then I try to add back this "Genaral Email" again today and realize is not working (with gmail)

I have just tried to add my gmail account (as general email) to my Jolla and no matter what I do, it keeps telling me to go back and correct my incoming server details, they are correct but the problem persists. Odd.

Google account may require enabling the IMAP access to the gmail. In this case the problem is not client side, but Google account setting. (I don't know if it is on by default, since I have used it on for very long time). Login to google, go "gear" settings / settings and there you have IMAP tab to enable it. After that you of course need the account settings. Looks like Google requires SSL and STL and authentication for SMTP, so take care setting each manually.
