    Problem with connecting Thunderbird to Gmail (allready read guides)

    Hello,

    imap is enabled in Gmail settings
    i use Gufw.

    Maybe it's something with my browser settings? I have a "No script" add on


    I just started with ubuntu yesterday, i really like it, and i can't wait to be a part of the linux community and help other people.

    IIRC, there's a setting in gmail prefs that controls your ability to use e-mail clients other than gmail itself.

    Thank you for the reply

    I enabled imap in the Gmail settings like I said, or are you talking about something else.

    I solved my own problem

    when you make a new account in thunderbird your username has to be the same as your e-mail

    I disabled the Gufw firewall, made an account, then looked at the connection settings and put them in my firewall rules, then enabled Gufw again

    Glad it's over
