I'm convinced that what they *really* want you to use either their WebMail interface, or their proprietary application, instead of a *real* email reader like T-Bird.

I seriously question the security in having authentication based on the box, rather than on the user.

At any rate, if I remember right, Google shut down password authentication for regular "@gmail.com" addresses some time ago, but kept it in place for whatever GMail service we're under. As I recall, I do occasionally have to make a server-side adjustment for our Trac system to still be able to send out email, though.
