Hi All,

Just looking at the Gmail account warning in this help doc:


My understanding was that by enabling the less secure apps setting for
the Gmail account in question Thunderbird would continue to function
with Gmail in the same way it always has. I created a free Gmail account
myself a week or two ago, and by making this setting I can connect using
Thunderbird fine. I also noted information from a Google developer on
the matter at

Is stating that it won't work at all until April 2015 not really accurate?
