When authenticating a google account, the process went smooth, enter password, enter code from phone
Google said that Em Client had been added 19 minutes ago. https://security.google.com/settings/security/permissions
So I exited eM Client completely, opened it again, and checked my mail, and it was working.
Great google may be protecting our privacy, maybe hording our privacy for it’s own ends, but certainly google is stealing our time. Hail google.
