    My email account is with Google (Gmail), and through POP (?), I access it in THE OBSOLETE (but still quite functional) Windows Live Mail (WLM 2012). Google has emailed me that in a month I have no choice but to go with TwoStepVerification (2SV), so I set it up immediately. Since then, WLM did not stop asking me for my Google password, until I cancelled the 2SV. That solves my problem for a month, but not beyond that.
    I already have Google set to allow less secure apps. Does anybody know a way of satisfying WLM's craving for a password under 2SV ?
