can not send or receive message and get a wrong cookies are disabled message

Posted

Since a few days I suddenly con not send or receive emails any more on one of my accounts. The message that keeps popping up is that cookies are disabled and that I must enable cookies (see pic). I do not understand why I should need to do that, but they are not disabled anyway!

I checked and tried everyting, server settings etc, but they were not changed by me and are the same as other (gmail) accounts. However there seems someting blocking authentication.

The only thing that I did is install Chrome as second browser, just before this problem started. I already tried uninstall it, but no help...

Do you have cookies enabled for *.google.com in TB under Tools/Options/Privacy/Web Content? This is separate from the cookies in your browser, although those may also affect authentication if you use OAuth authentication in TB (which initiates a browser window to verify the account). Maybe the use of a different browser caused the blockage of what worked before.
