    Unhappy Gmail account

    Hi guys.

    Trying to set up a fresh Gmail account on my Windows mail, something I have done heaps of times and get this error message.

    Account: 'XXXXhnz2014', Server: 'pop.gmail.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR [AUTH] Web login required: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/78754', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

    Any idea on what I'm doing wrong?

    Ian

    Yes I have.
    I can log in, via webmail, but even changing the login/password on one that works and it still won't get in.

    Did you set live mail for the password for both incoming and outgoing?
    Also why POP, why not IMAP?

    Pop 3 because l''ve been emailing over 20 odd years and always used it.
    I've rechecked the email account and set up correctly.
    So still have no idea what'd wrong.
