Every two weeks, my Google login is set to ask for my credentials - I use 2-factor authentication. So I can get as far as entering my unique code and submit, but then I receive the following error:
Please enable scripts and retry the operation or go back in your browser."
eM Client version 6.0.23421.0, running Win 7 Enterprise
This is a known problem that we are trying to solve at the moment.
Thank you for your patience.
To enable your account for now you can use a workaround that another user came up with >https://forum.emclient.com/emclient/t…
But we do realize this is just a temporary workaround and we try to locate the root of the issue.
The installation is running into a different issue on my Desktop, running Windows Server 2012R2, where after I enter my Google Auth code, it simply goes to blank white page.
@Olivia Rust: While that workaround may work, that is a terrible way to get things working. Requiring to disable two-factor authentication is not something I feel comfortable with. Especially given the fact that a lot of a mobile authenticators (blizzard, authy, etc.) have the requirement of the same. Even forums (like emClient) are using authentication integrated with Google authentication.
I agree that it’s not an ideal solution, but I felt that offering a way to get the gmail working (even if you’d have to disable 2-step verification for maybe a minute) is better than nothing.
I am sorry for the inconvenience, but as I mentioned, we did not manage to find the root of this problem yet. We will release a fix or correct solution as soon as we have it.
I understand and apologize if that sounded like an attack on you. I am hoping for a quick fix for this issue so that I can give em Client a fair shot during the trial period of 30 (now 29) days.
Almost everyone I know uses gmail (which is a lot of people) and is highly dependent on it. They cannot even think of not using 2-factor authentication on it. Possibly give people an option to use ‘application specific passwords’ instead of the 2-factor authentication? I have Outlook, Mailbird, Postbox functioning well with ‘application specific passwords’.
