It started after I was prompted for my password, couldn't remember it, changed it and had to deal with two step verification. Now, its questionable whether I can received mail but sure that I cannot send on either google or msn....
the error messages I receive are:

The Gmail SMTP connection to server “smtp.gmail.com” failed. (google)

The SMTP connection to server “smtp.live.com” failed. (msn)

I don't use either service, so I don't know any special tricks, but try this:

Mail > Preferences > Accounts > gmail account
Retype the password (the new one)
Check the Outgoing Mail Server entry to be sure it's what Google says you should use.
