After much headache, I managed to get my telus email migrated to gmail and set up using pop3. Been using it for a couple weeks now. All of a sudden, it gives me one of two errors:
1) Server timed out (if I try port 465)
2) Keeps asking me for my password (port 587) but says it's not correct even though I can log into my gmail account (telus webmail) using that password.
I've found both those ports as options for pop setup on gmail. I had 587 originally.
Is there some setting I'm missing?
I had had to change my password as I got confused as to which google account I was using. This is using the Corporate Telus one, not my personal one. I think that's correct? I'm not even sure anymore which one I was supposed to be using.
I'm using Thunderbird email.

Oh and forgot to mention: I have it on my android phone and can send emails just fine from there and the port shows as 465. But that times out on Thunderbird.

Thought I would update. It appears I had AUTH2 authentication in the pop section of Thunderbird and "Normal Password" in the other. Once I put them both as AUTH2 it worked. Geez. I don't know why Thunderbird doesn't have a setting that says "use same login for smtp and pop" like other email clients do.
