    Yes, your 3rd party email client uses your username and password to SIGN IN, which constitutes as signing in for Google.

      Are you sure? I’ve had accounts before where only signing in to the official web UI or client counted (because that’s where they showed ads and grabbed telemetry).

      So while WE would consider using third party clients to be signing in, THEY may define it differently.
