Hi ZULLO,

To enable cookies in Thunderbird, do the following.

  1. Go to Preferences > Privacy
  2. Check mark Accept cookies from sites

I've attached a screenshot to show you.

Gmail uses an authentication method called OAuth2, which will use the Gmail website login from within Thunderbird. That website requires a browser feature called "Cookies". Thunderbird does support cookies, and they are on by default, but if you have turned it off, you may see the error message.

Also note: Because this is a public forum, I've removed your personal information from your post.
