oAuth Support in Mailbird

 

You can now use Open Authentication 2.0 in Mailbird. As for now it is available only for Gmail accounts and oAuth is set by default when you add Gmail account to Mailbird. Here's more detail about it.

Just add your name and Gmail address in Menu -> Settings -> Accounts

Click “Continue” on the next window:

Click “Allow” on the next screen:

And that’s it! Your account is now using oAuth for Gmail!

Alternatively, if you prefer using login and password for authentication, you can do it. Just click “Edit server settings” on the “Settings found” window:

Then switch to “Username and password” instead of oAuth:

Then input your password and click “Continue”

    Doesn't work proper, every day i get "server authentication failed". Opening setting and continue fixes this, but that's not how it should work. putting it back to username and password is the only way to make work proper again.

    I have also been receiving the "Server authentication failed" notifications for my Google accounts for the past couple of weeks now though no action is required on my part - email still syncs normally.

    This post is perfect for Gmail accounts.

    I set up my 2 Gmail mailbox with Google OAuth 2.0 while the way 'Username & Password' did not work.
