Fetchmail Gmail

Post by ronaldjerardmedina » 17 Nov 2016, 04:14

I cant fetch email using my gmail. I was given an error that says "POP3s: auth for email/host failed"
I am pretty sure I input the correct email and password. I use pop.gmail.com as host.

Let me ask a stupid question, is POP3 enabled for that gmail account?

Yes!, Its enabled. I already fixed it now. Forgot to change the subject to solved.
The problem is with Auth, Google uses two auth factor with Captcha all I did was disable the captcha on the email and allow lesser secured apps.
Google auth is way complicated than I thought. But thanks for the question. Hope this thread will help others.
