I find it very difficult to configure my gmail currently in 2022, how do I solve this? since I don't even have two-step verification activated. Thank you
Here is a step by step guide :
- Go to your google account (user icon upper right of chrome or google.com)
- Click "Manage Your Google Account"
- In your account settings click on Security tab
- Scroll down to "Signing in to Google" section
- Click "App Passwords"
You will have to login with your google password again, for security
- Add a new app specific password for Elementary Mail.
- Then make sure you copy it to your clipboard
They will not show it to you again
(?) You may also want to save it somewhere in your password manager / list.
- Use this password when adding your gmail account in Elementary.
