That's been said - Google won't support Outlook 2016 and other "less secure apps" for access to Gmail after end of May 2022. What it means to us, users of Windows Live Mail, Outlook 2016 and earlier, Thunderbird, Mailbird, Claws Mail and other free and not very free mail clients?

In the beggining of March all of the Gmail mail service users received email from Google stating that "On May 30, you may lose access to apps that are using less secure sign-in technology". If you are one of those "gmailers" you , probably, already started asking your self a question: "Am I ready for that change? And what Email App should I start using to adopt it?". 

For the Outlook 2016 and earlier users it is pretty obvious. Google anounced that Outlook 365 and Outlook 2021 will support "Sign in with Google" or OATH 2.0 technology, so they just need to upgrade their Outlook to supported versions and, most likely, remove and add again their Gmail accounts with the tnew authentication.

But what about those of us who is using free mail clients like Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, and other nice mail apps and cannot afford to or do not want to pay for Outlook?

...I'm investigating this issue right now and will update this article with all my findings along the way...
