    Gmail issues?

    I noticed this morning when I went to use Thunderbird to access my Gmail account it was asking for my password and then failing. However when I went straight into Gmail it was fine. Anyone else experience this?

    I get this with igoogle gadget sometimes. Communication issue which usually settles itself over the day.

    It just had me a little worried since I just saw something online about there being a big password phishing scam going on.

    I think it's a Thunderbird issue. It asked for our passwords at random times, at least a couple times a week. Got annoying. Otherwise I loved Thunderbird.

    No more issues now that I'm using something else.

    I think some authentication hiccups are to blame.
