Chuck mentioned, off the group, that you can't access gmail through imap or pop3 unless you check a "allow less secure applications" button, and I have also experienced this.
And when I wanted to tap into my daughter's gmail by email, she too had to enable this "less secure apps" feature.
There are rumors that A) this option might go away, whence edbrowse access to gmail would go away, and
B) it relates to two-factor.
Without me doing a lot of research, can anyone explaain two-factor, and does curl support it, whence edbrowse could remain viable for gmail and other paranoid servers?
I'm guessing it's out of our hands; either curl supports it or it does not; but that's a guess.
