Login to server smtp.googlemail.com is failing.
When I try to send an email using Thunderbird, a window that says "SMPT Server Password Required" pops up asking me for my password. This never used to happen. When I enter the password of my associated Gmail account, it says "Login to server smtp.googlemail.com failed". If it's not the password of my associated Gmail account, then what password does it want? Is there a way to change the password?
Ok, I finally figured out what the problem was. It's Gmail's 2-Step Verification. I turned it off and now Thunderbird is accepting my password.
Thanks for all your help, christ1. I really appreciate it!

I had the same issue with Gmail's 2-Step Verification. I was able to resolve it without turning off 2-Step Verification by logging into my Google account and selecting: Account and then Security.
Under 'Account Permissions' select 'View All' and then 'Manage app passwords.'
It will prompt you to re-log into your Google account. Once there you'll see a section titled 'App passwords.' Use the 'Select app' drop-down to choose 'Mail.' Use the 'Select device' drop-down to choose 'Windows Computer.'
You should then see a pop-up with a password that you can use to authenticate Gmail's smtp.
The only problem is that it does this every time I open Thunderbird.
