Helpful Google

I recently got an email from Google helpfully suggesting I improve my security by block "low quality" apps. Sounded like a good idea, so I did. Then my IMAP server would no longer connect Gmail to MS Outlook on my laptop. Turned off the "security feature" and everything is OK again.

The cynic would suspect that Google was trying to get me to go all-in with Gmail. Perhaps there's a way to bock low security apps and still allow the Gmail to Outlook connection, but right now I can't be bothered. I use Gmail on my phone but maybe Google just wants "all of me."

Also use gmail, Droid app on phone, and Thunderbird on the PC that imports to local folders as a IMAP host. Leaving 180 days retention on the gmail mail servers.

As I recall, there was some tinkering through the security layer on the PC to allow the IMAP unfettered, do not reacall what it was exactly though...
