Trying to synchronize a gmail account.
I receive the error :
Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password.

The username and the password is correct.
The configuration is the proposed by the last version of thunderbird for windows 7 ultimate.

What can I do now ?

Best Regards

There is a known bug with OAuth in Gmail accounts due to some unannounced OAuth changes Gmail made on the server. It will be fixed in a new minor version. It supposedly only occurs if you changed the password or needed to create a new token for some reason. One workaround would be to switch to "normal password" as the Authentication method. That requires you to log in to your Google account with a browser and enable "less secure apps".

Yahoo did not change their OAuth2 implementation, so the problem won't occur with a Yahoo account.

Thanks a lot tanstaafl.
It's for a friend I recommended TB. I think he has the mobile authentication.

I will try in the next new minor version.

This is fixed in TB 68.2.1 (Oct. 31) and 60.9.1 (Nov. 5).

The current Tb 68.2.1 was Released on October 31, 2019 yes however the older Tb 60.9.1 was Released September 6, 2019 and not Nov 5. The Tb 60.9.1 is also EOL.

Huh?

Thunderbird Release Notes
Version 60.9.1, first offered to channel users on November 5, 2019

fixed

Problem with Google authentication (OAuth2)

REF: 60.9.1 Release Notes

and Index of /pub/thunderbird/releases/60.9.1/ shows the modified date as 05-Nov-2019 19:27

EDIT: My Linux distro Ubuntu hasn't updated 60.9.0 to any 68.x.x version. Waiting to see if they provide 60.9.1 anytime soon since a users on the Ubuntu forums are having problem with Google due to this bug.
