Additional Context

I was using MailSpring just fine until earlier today (9/20/2022) when I was unable to send messages. Would receive the error: Connection Error - Unable to connect to the server / port you provided. (SMTP).

Restarted application multiple times with same result. Tried different messages with same result.

Uninstalled MailSpring and reinstalled and now I receive the same error when trying to connect to my gmail account for the “first” time.

IMAP and POP are enabled through GMail. All of my folders are accessible through GMail.

I have also tried multiple GMail accounts with the same result. Seems that the client is having issues connecting to GMail as a whole from my end.
