I use 'thunderbird'.
I had no trouble following sympatico's directions for POP.
Nothing, not even the infinite number of monkeys, worked for SMTP.
I was told about Google's standard instructions :
Somewhere in there it says :
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS:
smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Note "TLS" and "SSL". I decided "some clients" means M$ windoze.
I set 'thunderbird' to 'tls' as Google instructs,
instead 'ssl' as sympatico instructs.
