I'd never heard of OAuth2 before and all it didn't was throw an error - can't remember exactly what it said but I was in a rush and one of the options in the authentication was password, so surely it should have worked?? > > > > > Even stranger was when I switched back to LM 18.3 (due to other > > unrelated issues) my Gmail account still failed to authenticate > > even > > though it was set to Password.
