Eudora and Google

My university uses Google as its enterprise server. On one of my home machines, I use the old Eudora 7.1.9 email client. It's been a pain with certificates and so forth, but my co-writer wanted to keep using it. It came time to change our university email/goggle passwords at the university. Which we did with no hassle. But when it came to changing it in Eudora, a simple process normally, we could not connect to the univ server through Eudora. It kept rejecting the new password, no matter what we did. My co-writer is a bit stubborn and like Eudora, so I'm looking for help troubleshooting this. I have not yet uninstalled/reinstalled Eudora. Other Eudora users who have successfully lost connection with their google account have tried various things to get them back. I tried them all - changing ports, playing with Google settings. Any atavists like us who use Eudora and have had this problem?

Are you using 2-Step-Verification?

If yes, you need to create an app password to access Gmail for Enterprise from Eudora.

To get to the mail on on Google server, we enter our user ID in the gmail box, which throws us to a university log-in page, which then takes us to the Google mail web app. As I read the explanation of two step verification, that doesn't fit it. So I'd say no, it's not two step verification.

Within your account profile on gmail, you need to register an otter device which will provide you a string that will heed to be used within Eudora as the password. This is what Jackie pointed out.
You provide a gmail password that then confirms you with the university,
This is a "two factor" like since goodie authenticates your credentials based on a data coming from your sso to tge university.

If you need a step by step that I believe us described in ?jackies links, I'll post the step by step after you login into google.com with your school account.

Well, we can log in anytime. The Google/NYU account has been established through the university. On the web, we can get in by logging into the university login, then click a link for mail, which takes us to Gmail. Or we can open Google, call up the gmail account box, type in our account name/domain hhss1234@nyu.edu, which then automatically takes us to our univ log-in, which then takes us to the Gmail interface.

Eudora was working fine. Then my wife's account got hacked and was filled with hotmail posts, and at that point Gmail shut the account down. So NYU had to call them to reinstate the account and she had to come up with another new password. Since then, I can't get Eudora to get Google to authenticate the PW, and I've tried every port you can think of.

I think you're suggesting she needs a second password for Google, double authentication? These networking issues are something.

Try the following, login into google.com with your university account.
Go to my account
See if the account now reflects 2-factor auth.
This is where you can authorize devices for access....
Once you add an app, it will provide you with a string which would need to be copied and used as the password on.

Have not used Eudora, but short of that you would need to see whether there are sso plugins for Eudora(or find its open source successor) .........

It is not a question if port, the account requires an extra step for authentication/authorization.
