Cannot access Gmail e-mails in Thunderbird -- "username and password not accepted"

Beküldve

I get this message when I try to download my Gmail e-mails into Thunderbird: "Sending of password for user myemail@gmail.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.gmail.com responded: Username and password not accepted." I've reset my password, and I know I have the correct one. I can access my e-mail on Gmail website; however, it's very unwieldy. Any suggestions?

After setting the 'less secure apps' option, did you restart Thunderbird ?

Error mentions both Username and password, so please check the 'Account Settings' > 'Server Settings' for incoming server settings. Username needs to be your full gmail email address.

You need to check the smtp server settings as well.

You'll need to 'allow less secure apps' in your Google settings. See https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6009563

Thanks! Sorry for the delay. I did try that, and nothing changed. I also cleared all my browser cookies.

I ended up un-installing and re-installing Thunderbird completely. Unfortunately, I lost my e-mail folders and contacts, but at least I can organize things again. Thanks!
