change the settings in your gmail account.
Go to the following link and change the settings to
Access for less secure apps > turn on

And in your N9
go to accounts
add accounts
Choose "Other mail accounts"
Write your username (example@gmail.com) and password
tap on manual setup
choose imap4 or pop (i used imap4 with server imap.gmail.com)
SSL secured at port 993

outgoing server
smtp.gmail.com
SSL secured
465 port
authentication plain password.
and then you can reccieve and send emails through your Nokia N9.
Hope this helped someone.
so I tried to allow less secure apps, BUT it requires that I disable 2-Step verification...

Do any other mail services work (i.e. hotmail, yahoo, outlook)?

Eventually managed to set up Hotmail with IMAP4 manually after a lot of fiddling:-

Incoming mail server:
Server address = imap-mail.outlook.com
Secure connection = SSL
Port = 993

Outgoing mail server:
Server address = smtp-mail.outlook.com
Secure connection = TLS
Port = 587
Authentication = Plain password
