Thunderbird username or password invalid

Thunderbird username or password invalid

Thunderbird gmail username or password invalid

To link to an Outlook exchange server, I’m using Davmail 4.8.0-2479. Setting this up has been a pain because while I was able to retrieve calendar events using vdirsyncer, retrieving emails using offlineimap consistently failed. After much wracking of brains, I discovered that the issue was that my account password was of the form abcd1defg2.
This password works fine when using offlineimap to link to Outlook Exchange. When using davmail, however, the same password combination does not work. In that case, it fails to connect because the Exchange server returns an invalid username or password code.
This problem goes away if I use a password without the backslash at the end; it seems to be a flaw in the backslash handling. Since it works perfectly when connecting to the mailservers directly using offlineimap, I believe this is a bug in the way Davmail handles passwords.

Thunderbird login to server failed enter new password

Despite the fact that my machine is in perfect working order, I decided to put my recovery procedures to the test. As a result, I renamed profiles.ini in the Thunderbird folder to make the Thunderbird software think I was starting from scratch. I got as far as “Mail account setup” while attempting to recreate my account, but was then told that “Configuration could not be checked — is the username or password wrong?” The password I used, zHg7MDWeQOn2, works great for AOL Mail at https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite (AOL manages the verizon.net domain), but it is rejected when I try to set up Thunderbird. If and when my machine (now over 6 years old) dies, I expect to face the same problem in real life.

Thunderbird outlook password not working

“Password or password is invalid,” Thunderbird says. When both the username and password are right, “Configuration could not be checked.” Is there a way to fix this? Let me help you with your issue. I’ve switched from IMAP to POP3 and back. We recognize that an error message prevents you from connecting your Outlook.com account to Thunderbird. Please try logging in to the Outlook.com website to see if you still get the same error message.
You can either look in the private message field or press the notification that says, “You have a private reply to this message.” To read it, go to our safe private messages section and click here.” Make sure you’re signed in to see it.

Thunderbird gmail password not accepted

In Thunderbird, I’m attempting to set up my primary Gmail account using IMAP. The password registers as invalid every time I try to set it up. I can link if I change the configuration to POP. I’m at a loss for what else to try.

If you’re using Windows or OS X, go to Help/About TB and upgrade to 60.9.1. If your Linux distribution hasn’t yet released 60.9.1, there is a TB version available. Alternatively, you can use the Edit/Preferences/Advanced/General/Config. editor to implement the workaround.
In Thunderbird v68.3.1, I’m trying to change my Gmail password, and the original ones are SSL/TLS/OAuth2 authentication. It’s not going to work. As a result, I removed and re-added it, but the result is the same.
