Using Folders with Thunderbird and Gmail

  • Answered
I had my gmail account with thunderbird but not all the folders so I removed it form thunderbird and now it keeps saying "Thunderbird - Configuration could not be verified - is the username or password wrong?" I've spent the hour looking online and doing everything the settings and even changing the password yet won't work still.

I use thunderbird 24.6.0

I'm confused and tired. Can someone please help me?
Hello itsnotworking, Thank you for your question about using folders with Thunderbird and Gmail, and updating us on this issue. So, a virus was stopping Thunderbird from authenticating with the server? Do you know what the virus was called? What did you use to remove the Virus? If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below. Thank you, -John-Paul
