    GMail being blocked by Google?

    If you have a GMail account, and you receive your email on your PC using an email program like, Windows Mail or O.E.Classic, you may be having trouble logging in to Google to get your email.
    Your email program is most likely NOT the problem, but it's your NON-Secure password.
    Now Google wants to give you a 16 digit secure "App Password". But the process is not simple.
    I found a U-Tube video that will walk you through the process.
    How to add Google account or Gmail into OE Classic using an app password - YouTube

    It really helped me to have two PC's to for watching the video and the other to access my GMail account at Google.

    Once the 16 digit App Passwords were used to replace my old passwords in my Email programs, I could download my email as usual.

    My email program (Windows Mail) was never the problem, as I thought,,, it was that danged NON-Secure password.

    Good Luck,
