Gmail authentication loop

Hi everyone,

I’m currently dealing with an issue in adding my gmail account, such that the authentication window pops up over and over after completion… I am aware that this issue has already been posted numerous times, but I couldn’t find a working solution in any of the previous threads.

Currently using 7.0.27943.0
I have IMAP access enabled in gmail settings.

Things I have tried:

  • Reinstalling emclient multiple times (while also removing app authorization from my google account in between installs)
  • Changing and checking password
  • disabling 2 step auth
  • enabling use of “less secure apps” from google settings

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide

Hello Bart,
have you tried starting over with a new database? To remove your database files go to C:\Users%windows user account%\AppData\Roaming\eM Client
Have you tried changing your default browser to a different one and then adding your account?

Hi Olivia,

I tried both of these steps, including full reinstall + deletion of database files, alas to no avail.
