Cannot add mail account

I use proxy , I can add Google Calendar normally, but I can't add my email account.
@russ44 Check to make sure you have "less secure" apps permitted in your Google settings.
I'm having similar trouble. And I do have "Less Secure" apps permitted in my Google settings. I've attempted with 2 separate gmail accounts, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org. Autodiscovery fails, and manual entry times out.
Vivaldi 4.0.2312.25 (Stable channel) (arm64)
OS macOS Version 11.5 (Build 20G5023d)
I've also tried this on my Linux machine with identical results.
Also, using my google account for the calendar works just fine.
I don't believe I'm using proxy like russ44. At the very least, I haen't messed around with proxy settings.
@plentyofpaper654 Are you using 2FA?
If that's the same as 2-Step Verification, it was turned off at the time I posted above. I know I messed around with it using app-specific passwords from an older thread.
I just turned it back on, and tried again with identical results.
@plentyofpaper654 I asked, because it can break the setting up of new accounts.
@ayespy Moving forward, is it preferred to leave it off?
@plentyofpaper654 I'm not sure I know of anyone who is using it successfully with M3. What's "preferrred" is whatever works at this moment - and it appears that some mail domains just can't be set up in M3. When this happens, I recommend filing a bug report.
Thank you for the help. I'll go do that.
