Windows Eudora 7.0.1.0 - checking GMail accounts gives Server SSL Certificate Rejected error.

Hi Experts,

I have been using Eudora to send/receive GMail for years with the same settings.

But today, every time my Gmail accounts are checked, I get this message:

Title: Server SSL Certificate Rejected

The server's SSL Certificate was rejected for the following reason:

Unknown Error

Do you want to trust this certificate in future sessions?

Google Gmail has changed to something called OAuth.  The only email client I know of that supports OAuth is the very latest version of Thunderbird which I installed yesterday.  Since Eudora is no longer in development, it will never support OAuth.
