After using Thunderbird for many years I have decided to migrate to a new email client. I installed eM Client and imported the settings from Thunderbird (TB) which went smoothly but no send or receive was possible. I uninstalled eM client and started again this time with IMAP - same result.
I’m a using gmail account with IMAP enabled, POP3 enabled and google 2 factor authentication enabled. I use Avast Anti virus and have included eM Client as an exception.
What am I doing wrong? When I attempt to send test messages to myself I get
These after changing the security protocols.
I now am using
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com Port: 587 Security policy: Use SSL/TLS on special port (legacy)
IMAP Server: imap.gmail.com Port 993 Security policy: Use SSL/TLS on special port (legacy)
and I’m getting the same error message timed at 1520 above and the mail isn’t sent.
