Is there any error message?

Sorry Chris!

I have many different email accounts in Thunderbird, until recently all of the accounts were working correctly. However, now I am unable to send emails from my gmail account, yet I am still able to receive emails.

I have checked 2-step authentication/OAuth/other various settings, and each time I am still unable to send emails. Is this common with gmail and are there any known solutions to this problem.

Thank you for the help! -Doug

What are your smtp settings for the gmail account? Do you connect through a VPN? Is the antivirus (name?) scanning outgoing mail?

Recommended settings: on 993 or on 995, on 465. Security = SSL/TLS, authentication = OAuth2, User Name = email address. Cookies must be accepted in TB Preferences for OAuth2 authentication.
