Aggravating Google Popup in Thunderbird

Post by BobH »

For the last several days I've been getting the popup shown in the screenshot in my Thunderbird email client. I've looked online and found a lot of posts complaining about it or similar google spam in browsers but nothing in email client software. I have no idea what might have changed to cause it. I do run a cleaner daily. I found that I had Chrome installed. I removed it yet the problem persists.

Any ideas? :cheers: :chocciebar: :thankyou:

Have you added a Gmail account to Thunderbird? If so, you'll be asked to log in...

Thanks for the responses.

Yes, I have a couple of gmail accounts in Thunderbird; however, I've had them for quite some time and the pop up only recently started.

I do have a gmail smtp in the list. I made it 'default'. We shall see if this works.

As is always the case, Hans provided the answer.

When I got the nag screen to sign in, I did so. The nag has not returned. I don't know why it suddenly appeared. I must have done something to cause it but I don't know what I did. The puzzling thing is that I have several gmail accounts and only the one was nagging for a login.

Thank you, once again, Mr. V. :cheers: :chocciebar: :cheers:
