The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry...

Weird how it worked before with the same gmail account, but will not work now. I presume gmail changed some of its security settings since we last played in the dark ages?

Sorry about the crooked link. I get my reports in dutch language so its a hassle to convert that to its english counterpart. But you should look for 'less trusted apps' . Google it in relation to Gmail Inbox.
I am sure you should be able to find what I mean.

If this still doesnt work after that I have no further suggestions for getting this to work; especially since some of you DO seem to get the mails just fine.
That makes me think it definately is a firewall or security setting.

The Armada manual has a snippet about firewall settings and PBeM too, so check up on that. Might be in the Supernova manual.

looks like that link is for something called 'G-Suite', which requires a subscription ($5/month after free trial). I can't find anything similar in my gmail account settings, only a list of apps/OSs that have previously accessed gmail but no info on enabling new ones.

Is Allow Less Secure Apps on in your gmail settings? Should be an option for it at the bottom of the Connected apps & sites section.

See the attached screenshot.

Most email providers have changed the security requirements for outdated/insecure apps (which I'm figuring the game is now considered to be). My Yahoo account nags me regularly about which things I allow to connect to it.

I couldn't find a 'connected apps and sites' section. Here are the tabs I can choose from:

It's under the Accounts tab. Once in there click the link for Google Account Settings.

Thanks Mirth. I've finally found the hitch. looks like I'll need to set up a separate account for Armada:

Makes sense. Good for you if you're using two step verification.

If the game cannot recognise your gmail account, you can still copy the file you get in the inbox folder from armada 2526 supernova (which i had to do right now).

Finally, was able to download to the folder that Anguille pointed out and was able to launch the game.
