PLEASE HELP… this effects many Thunderbird & gmail users:
Every few months I get “Security” alerts from Google re my gmail Security Settings, saying: “Turn off less secure access.” IF I do that, then I can’t boot Thunderbird!
I’ve had same problem with Thunderbird-gmail using Debian, Trisquel, and Ubuntu.
Yet ironically, when I receive these Google alerts, Thunderbird gives also gives me a warning - “To protect your privacy, Thunderbird has blocked remote content in this message.”
IE to get Thunderbird and gmail to work together, I have to disregard BOTH your security alerts! WHY?.. but more importantly:
- Is there a way to keep max Google Security Settings AND still use Thunderbird?_____
- Is Thunderbird really less secure, even with other email systems?______
Thanks for any help,
