    Gmail playing silly ***


    Today it has been refusing to accept the password, when I try to access via Thunderbird. Therefore I deleted in Google and reinstalled, but still the password was rejected, so I created a new word, and successfully opened in browser.

    When, however, I configure in Thunderbird, inserting the same word, the settings are OK, but the password is refused.

    I've no idea why, but also keep getting security messages, that are driving me mad.
    has anyone a clue how I can get the problem sorted, please, and also tame Google's interfering bossiness?

    Hi chipwood.

    Any chance you have two step verification turned on? If so you probably need an "App" password.

    Not sure how you are connecting to gmail, either POP or IMAP.

    For some reason there have been a few threads about gmail rejecting what is considers less secure connections / apps.

    If you go to "My Account" in gmail you can permit sign in from less secure apps. Should be under Password section as I recall.

    I have been having issues with it as well. Takes forever for an email to deliver.
