Can't link to Gmail

Can’t link to Gmail - login credentials fail. Same credentials I use to login directly online. Must be something other than username/password.

Hi Richard,

" Must be something other than username/password."

Yes, you’ve got that right…
Below an extract of my post a few days ago:
"Secondly, related to Gmail - There are several authentication methods for Gmail.
1.The simplest is to lower the security settings for the email client, but you will get frequent security reminders from Google if you make it a permanent setting,

Post a new Topic, Thanks

I have the same problem. Gmail was OK until Google increased the security on Gmail accounts. Then I got message that Gmail could not be accessed because eM Client was not secure. Went into my Gmail account and reset security to low-level. But still could not access Gmail from eM Client; now username or password were incorrect, although they were same as used to access Gmail directly! Now will see if I can change to an App password, as suggested above.
