Cannot connect to gmail with new 7.7.0

Sat Nov 07, 2015 10:08 am

I have just received my 7.7.0 version. The email account I had loaded for the previous version would not connect to the gmail server. I deleted the account. I then let Mail Washer search for accounts. I selected on for the correct email address. Sill get the error message "Failed to connect to server". I can use Google Chrome to connect to Gmail using my current password. That password seems to not work with Mail Washer. Each time I try to connect to gmail with Mail Washer I continue to get the error "Failed to connect to server". I am at my wits end. Any one have any Ideas as to how to fix my problem?

You may want to take a look at the graphic illustration at the following link for the Gmail server (POP3) configurations:—
MWP 7 (ßeta) | Windows 10 LTSC (20H2) | The Bat! Professional (ßeta) | Windows 10 Firewall Control (ßeta) | ESET Endpoint Antivirus (ßeta) | nVIDIA GeForce (GTX 1060) | Internet Connection Speed (4G USB tethering — VoLTE) | .NET Framework (4.8)
