Re: Thunderbird authentication

I am noticing the disadvantages of imap as I have already lost an important email due to creating and removing client. With imap every time deleting something causes the corresponding back copy on the server to also be deleted.

Re: Thunderbird authentication

Hello, I need to reiterated, only when I create a new account on the client with imap setting do I see an option for 0Auth2. And even then that option is limited to the incoming server. Outgoing still is limited to SSL/TLS, STARTLS and none. The original account which also has been switched from pop...

Re: Thunderbird authentication

BTW when I say it wont send, it is without any errors. It just shows a dialog box saying sending. But it is there forever not doing anything.

Re: Thunderbird authentication

But when I create a new account I see the 0Auth2 option. It downloads but wont send. Only incoming serve...

Re: Thunderbird authentication

Thanks I am still struggling with this. No idea why I started in the first place. I actually removed the account and recreated a new one with imap settings. It started download and syncing with all my historic mails. 4K in all. But it would not send anything. Crucially I have not been able to recrea...

Re: Thunderbird authentication

And it has worked just fine all these past seven years.

Re: Thunderbird authentication

I just tried Evolution and see that it cannot authenticate either. The difference being that there is no specific error message. It just keeps asking me for my gmail password. When I put it in and click OK the same dialog box pops up with a blank password field.

Re: Thunderbird authentication

I managed to compress the screenshots. As you can see the drop down selector does not show the protocol you mention.

Re: Thunderbird authentication

Funny thing is that loosening up the security has not helped at all. I am wondering if try to use evolution would I be able to migrate my backup emails .thunderbird into it?

Re: Thunderbird authentication

I think you may be using a different version. Mine does not have preferences. Just server settings. Unfortunately the forum wont let me upload the screenshots. Says they are too large. The drop down does not have that protocol

Re: Thunderbird authentication

OK, so since there have been no further bits of advice I guess I am going to have to go for the upgrade. Sorry Admin I tried to read the manual but it is all about editing scripts which is over my head. My thunderbird does not have 0Auth2 option. Doing it on the server side (gmail portal) was not al...

Re: Thunderbird authentication

I have backups. But even with backups (locally and cloud) in the past I have lost data. For example, I always backup the ./thunderbird folder. So when I install a new system I copy and paste into home folder and 8 times out of 10 I have everything up and running as before. But with each iteration of...

Re: Thunderbird authentication

My platform has been fine since installing it two years ago. Never had a problem with any version of thunderbird. Seems a very drastic and time consuming solution to the authentication problem.

Re: Thunderbird authentication

Yes, Mint 18.3 is the only one. And I don't intend to reinstall the OS. At least not yet. I am merely going to reinstall the mail client. And if I do go for the drastic measure I might opt for Mint 19. Has any one experienced bugs with 19? Do I have to install nvidia driver manually in compatibility...
