University account

more options

Hello, hope you are all right. I dowloaded recently thunderbird and it has worked great for me but the only problem is that I can't set up my university account. I know is a mail based on gmail but it has a differente domain (@uc.cl) and I really don't know how to add it to thunderbird. I know is maybe an easy thing to do but I really can't set it up. When I try to add it, it follows the next message "Authentication failed. Either the entered credentials are incorrect or a separate username is required for logging in". I've checked the credentials and writing my windows domain login, but nothing works. Hope you can help me. Thanks!

Start from File/New/Existing Account..., enter your credentials, click Manual config., and enter these server settings:

incoming IMAP server imap.gmail.com on port 993 or pop.gmail.com on port 995 for POP, SSL/TLS security; outgoing smtp.gmail.com on port 587, STARTTLS security; authentication = OAuth2 for both servers, User Name = email address.

Make sure that cookies are allowed i TB Options/Privacy & Security so that OAuth authentication completes.
