Hi,

Removed one of my gmail accounts from TB and when re-adding the account I get the message that i cant log in to the server. Probably wrong settings, username or password. Username is my gmail account and the password is correct. I think the problem is Oauth2. If I remember right I used to get an extra authentication from gmail when I add a new gmail account to TB, this doesent happen now. Imap is allowed on my gmail account. Cockies is allowed in TB. Whats wrong?

Soon after TB updated 11/28/20 I lost the ability for my e-mail accts to access Gmail, coincidence? One acct was caught in a spinning loop so I deleted account and tried to re-instate. I get the same wrong password etc. I've checked manual configuration & OK. I've paused firewall & nothing. No VPN. I've deleted TB & reloaded, nothing. All other existing accts don't work either. The only thing I haven't tried yet is to use is scrubber like rovouninstaller to remove TB and then reload. Is it me or a bug between TB & Gmail? Ideas?
