I'm trying to connect to my Gmail account. I'm sure, that correct username/password is provided.

I'm getting following error messages:


Rebex.Net.Imap.Login throws Rebex.Net.ImapException with following message:

"Web login required (Failure) (NO)."


Rebex.Net.Pop3.Login throws Rebex.Net.Pop3Exception with following message:

"[AUTH] Username and password not accepted."
Applies to: Rebex Secure Mail

Such messages are often indication of a temporarily locked-out account. It is possible that you tried logging in multiple times with wrong password or that someone has tried to guess your Gmail password, causing Gmail to lock your account.

Verify and unlock your Gmail account at http://www.google.com/accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha and then try connecting again.
