I can't connect mail to the account Gmail from my Macbook Pro. Under Mail, I select preferences to ensure I have IMAP connected. But I'm still unsuccessful sending mail.

What's your sending server? If you get mail, but can't send that's the obvious issue. Should be, using TLS (requires authentication) and it will want you login info again most likely. – nerdwaller Apr 19 '13 at 3:22
What error do you get? – Vincent Apr 19 '13 at 4:05

You may need to enable IMAP on the account. In Gmail -> Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> Enable IMAP
