Hello - I received an email regarding my G Suite account that says starting Feb 15, 2021, G Suite accounts will only allow access to apps using OAuth. Password-based access will no longer be supported.
It goes on to say: If you are using Thunderbird or another email client, re-add your Google Account and configure it to use IMAP with Oauth.
It says if I do not take the above action, when LSA access is discontinued after Feb 15, 2021, I'll begin receiving an error message that my username-password combo is incorrect.
I have personal and business G-mail accounts, both of which I access through Thunderbird. I'm not a techie -- this was all set up for me by someone else -- and I'm unsure about how to "re-add/reconfigure my Google account," and when to implement this -- or is it possible that Thunderbird has already made changes at that end to accommodate this new Oauth requirement?
I'd be eternally grateful for any specific how-to steps you can provide to ensure uninterrupted email service.
Thanks so much!
