Gmail account authentication failure

getting authentication failure notice, invalid credentials, trying to set up my gmail account on em client . saw Gary’s post from Dec 20 on authentication failure, none of those solutions work on either imap or sstp

What point in the Gmail automatic wizard setup do you get up to ? If you do a screenshot & blank out anything personal.

Also what version of eM Client do you have ?

Also do you have Windows or Mac and what OS version.

Hi thanks for reply. Windows 10, em client 6.0.19861.0. I think this is an old version but I don’t like the new ones!
It shows the password required box as soon as I enter the username / password on set up and that pops up all the time till I delete the account again

Unfortunately there are two issues here:

  1. You can’t use a username password any longer with Google accounts as they now require oAuth (passwordless).

  2. The web browser part of eM Client version 6 which is needed to setup oAuth doesn’t comply with Google’s oAuth 2.0 policy.

You will need to upgrade to the latest release of eM Client for this to work.
