Am I the only one to face Gmail refusing to accept IMAP logins from Claws?
[21:36:36] IMAP4> Logging ***@***.com to imap.gmail.com using LOGIN
[21:36:37] IMAP4< Please log in via your web browser:
[21:36:37] *** error: IMAP4< Alert: Please log in via your web browser:
[21:36:37] ** warning: IMAP error on imap.gmail.com: LOGIN error
[21:36:37] IMAP4< Error logging in to imap.gmail.com
I am using version 3.11.1-1ubuntu1ppa1 from Ubuntu's PPA:
Are you guys aware of the issue? It seems that Claws has been put by
Google into "less secure apps" category for some reason.
There is a workaround to the problem that allows users of "less secure
apps" to disable the block.
Although I really would like to understand what's wrong with Claws. Anybody?
