I changed my Google password and entered it in Tbird Pswd Mgr but can't log in

Veröffentlicht

Google made me update my password, so I went to Tools/Options/Security and changed my password for my gmail account. I saved it in Password Manager. It is saved in both imap and smtp server settings. My old password no longer shows. Message says "Login to server imap.googlemail.com with username xxx@gmail.com failed." I didn't change any settings except the password. The new password works on Google webmail and on my iPhone but not on Thunderbird. Thanks for any advice you might offer.

Thank you, Toad! That worked. Google considers Thunderbird and Outlook as not up to G's security standards.

re : IMAP

Are you using Authentication Method : OAuth2 ?

If no - you are using 'Normal Password': Logon to webmail account using a browser and see if you need to select 'less secure apps' option. Gmail may have blocked you if they reset that option as not selected.

You solved my problem 2 months ago but it's happening again since I had to change my password again. I have my Google setting to allow less secure apps and still can't access gmail on Tbird.

Never mind, it seems to be working now. Seemed to take an hour to settle in!
