Fair warning: if you do this and have an Android phone, you're going to be entering quite a few of those one off passwords. (And while yes, you can revoke access on each and yadda yadda yadda - it's still a pain in the ass.) For my Sensation I've had to enter a one off auth for the HTC email client (which I can't uninstall, unfortunately - the native GMail is much better), Google Market, the native GMail application... and that's just one device out of four I have to configure. For those who are saying it's not secure: nothing in the cloud is secure. Like all things you must balance convenience with security and having access to my email from anywhere is a convenience I enjoy. Also, for those who are saying "why not just use a strong password"? Why not use a strong password and 2 factor authentication? I didn't know they had this feature or I'd have turned it on long ago - and I use randomly generated passwords for every individual site. Anecdotal, certainly, but valid. Thanks Jeff.
