Well I went to the Gmail site and checked to let less secure clients have access so never any problems. And as a matter of fact, I had to do that when I set up an account on Outlook but not on WLM. So not sure where your info comes from.

For those who are using any of the e-mail clients mentioned such as
WLM, keep in mind that some e-mail servers such as Gmail and Yahoo consider
them less secure apps, and may require the use of an app password.

HTH,

By the way, I mis-spoke when I said WLM was more powerful than Outlook.
Outlook is probably the most powerful email client but has way too many
features that I don’t need or want to contend with. WLM fits my needs and
that is what everyone require from their client.
Like most things in the computing world, if you like a program and it fits
your nee ds, it is the best for you.

WLM 2012 does seem to still be chugging along just fine. If anyone needs
the installer, I archived it less than 7 days before it was pulled when
Microsoft ended official support for it, though I recommend going to another
currently supported e-mail client or webmail. Windows Live Mail (Windows
Essentials) 2012 (ZIP format)

NVDA has an add-on that allows for easy rearrangement of the columns in
Thunderbird, Mozilla Apps Enhancements, among numerous other things. So if
you're also an NVDA user I'd suggest trying that if you wish to rearrange,
add, or remove columns in Thunderbird.

The fact is that when it comes to an email client security, not ease of use
(within reason), is paramount. The older an email client is, if it's been
out of support, the easier it is for those who want to find attack surfaces
to find them and exploit them.
