Re: Help needed regarding setting security options in Gmail

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>

And just for the record, the use of the less secure apps option is not necessary if using Thunderbird.  It has been capable of using the required OAUTH authentication method for Gmail for some time now.

Outlook Express, being as old as it is, predates the OAUTH method.  Not to mention it's been out of support for over a decade now.

Always remember that computers are just glorified light bulbs - they rarely fail in continuous use and usually go pop when turned off and on.
