You may lose access to some of your third-party apps...

Does anyone knows with some degree of confidence ...

How it will be the situation of email agents like FETCHMAIL  when this change takes place ?

I use FETCHMAIL by default to centralize and filter my stuff for decades..
it will be a real tragic loss if they cut fetchmail without a solution  :-\

Thanks

"You may lose access to some of your third-party apps"   on what device / OS,  and why?

ops sorry not to post that ...

but by now every google user received or will receive their broadcast email warning with these titles..

On May 30, you may lose access to apps that are using less secure sign-in technology

A simple google search with this title tells that several  email clients as Outlook 2006, thunderbirds as well... and others will not be able to access gmail..

I was wondering if mail transport agents will be penalized with this paranoid settings  as well

I use fetchmail to organize things for decades...

Yep, got the same.

From what I gathered, third-party apps *should* still be usable if they implement OAuth 2.0. Note the *should* - as what Google will actually enforce is not crystal clear at this point.

I don't know how difficult it is to add OAuth 2.0 and what exactly are the implications (meaning: what kind of applications just could never implement it?)

geez for automated email transport agents  which does not and never will use those captchas and ati-robots paranoias...  i guess... never...  :palm:

They exist for the purpose of automation .. so far the challenge response authentication was enough for POP and IMAP...

WTF  now ?

Paul :wtf:
