I have a problem (again) with entry of a password to my Googlemail account in Thunderbird (used in a Mac). First of all, I must admit being very confused by googlemail v. gmail (I am a retired person and it is easy to do, in my case). I had no problem receiving emails on my account googlemail until recently, when I was asked to enter a password for imap. I put all the passwords I could think and I just changed my Google account password and put it in, nothing works. Nothing seems to work. Googlemail is one account I have in Thunderbird, but my google username seems to be [email protected] I am totally confused and do not know what are the components. Can someone clarify this for me please (I mean specify, I won ' be able to understand anything too complicated). Somewhere along the line when I was trying to fix it I received an email saying "Google will continue to block attempts to connect to the application that you use, because he has known security problems or is obsolete. You can continue to use this application allowing access to less secure applications, but this can leave your account vulnerable. "but obviously, I don't want to have an account that is vulnerable. What should I do? Ideally, I would like to have the same password for both, which would allow me to save a lot of trouble. Thanks a lot.

  • Cannot remove Thunderbird mail all mail or the treaties since I changed my password for googlemail. Can't remove it from the Inbox and sent mail

    I recently changed my googlemail password and saved a nine on Thunderbird. However, when I try to delete mail messages or my project all the files they reappear again and I have to go in googlemail to remove. I can delete in the Inbox and sent folders (even if I was prompted to enter the password for each of them at the start, but I have received no invitation for projects and all messages. I don't want to change the settings regarding where these messages are stored.

    I thank very you much for your useful replies. I checked all the settings and they were as you described. Removal of all mail is not important and can be done, if necessary, from Gmail. I have overcome the problem of the drafts folder by changing the destination folder in the drafts IMAP that allows me to remove both Thunderbird and Gmail at the same time, which is what I needed. However, I still do not understand why change my Gmail password should have caused the problem in the first place!

  • How is it safe to type the password for the Mac in while net surfing?


    This question, I hope a little more am react.

    Mac (not the apple account password) password is required to type to make big system changes. I started thinking, how easy is to villains to steal? I was surfing net to find answers to a problem and then typed in command in And then started worrying - could he was reading / stolen by some site that I had to open this time?

    Noticed that terminal needed no password minute later when I added the new command. I hope he didn't mean that his record here and outside the source able to read?

    Sorry I don't know much about tech. I hear passwords remain safe and it worried me. Ease is even steal password of Mac by external sources (hoping that I am not infected with what either).

  • password for a restore of backup?

    I'll have my iPhone 6 repaired and so after backing up the phone I tried reinstalling this backup on my spare iPhone 5.  It's iTunes asks me the password for my backup but I did not indicate an and so obviously have no idea of what the * your password?

    am I stupid here? no idea what to do now so any help would be apprecited

    Thank you very much

    iTunes can not set a password for a backup, you need user intervention. If you don't remember the password for the backup, you will need to delete the backup and restore the phone to the factory. This is the only way to recover that. You will not be able to use the backup because it contains the password. See this support document. On safeguards encrypted in iTunes - Apple Support

    At some point, iTunes began to requires me to enter my password for each song I buy.  Usually, I do the search and buy on my Windows 7 desktop.  I scoured my account looking for an explanation on why he has changed, but I think not all the controls that I maybe changed.  Always in the past, once that I registered on my account, I could buy all the pieces I want without another password to sign in.   This change took place a few months ago.

    Try to remove the password that Thunderbird remembered your BT account.
    You will then be prompted to enter the password if necessary.
