Unable to recieve email using recent mode

I retreive email on several devices and therefore use recent mode, adding the "recent:" switch before my full email address in the username field of my email client which is Outlook

Following recent email changes this is no longer working and authentication fails using the recent switch

Is there any explanation for this?

Re: Unable to recieve email using recent mode

recent : mode was a Google abomination that was used to solve a problem that shouldn't actually exist.  As such it's not been used since VM moved to their own e-mail platform in 2015.

VM's system previously stripped recent: off the username prior to authenticating, but appears to have stopped doing so.
