YAM - Yet Another Mailer (#2) - Connectiong to gmail (#121) - Message List

Connectiong to gmail

Hi, i have tried to add a google account to my existing 2 service providers.

I found inspiration here: https://bytemyvdu.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/setting-up-gmail-with-yam-and-amiga-experience/

i did not change the smtp settings but only added a

3)xxxxxx@… line in tcp/IP window with the described setting in the ref (those corrected in the lower part of the article)

When testing the connection settings i got the message from YAM2.10 dev latest build

==================== Bad response from mail server 'pop.gmail.com' of account 'gmail' to command 'PASS': -ERR [AUTH] Web login required:


The mail server couldn't execute the command and replied with the above error message.

From gmail i got a mail telling me

Sign-in attempt prevented Hi Joseph,Someone just tried to sign in to your Google Account xxxx@… from an app that doesn't meet modern security standards.Details: Saturday, August 15, 2015 4:18 PM (Central European Summer Time) Brussels, Belgium*We strongly recommend that you use a secure app, like Gmail, to access your account. All apps made by Google meet these security standards. Using a less secure app, on the other hand, could leave your account vulnerable.

Google stopped this sign-in attempt, but you should review your recently used devices:

How can this be solved ? Edit: I was able to solve the issue following the google instructons from my Ipad (was not able to do so using Odyssey) In fact i checked "allow less secure apps" What to think about this? I now will download systematically all incoming mail on my gmail account.to YAM, i can have far easier control & filtering) compared to the Ipad mail app or to the gmail webinterface, delete or save elsewhere, what i don't want to be hacked.

My worries are over other google services (google docs, google drive)

I guess & hope these are not affected

Any idea why google categorizes yam as insecure?
