As far as I understand:
this confusing error message is a Google's FUD to discourage using third
party email clients that employ password authentication over TLS.  I
don't think it has anything to do with the negotiated TLS ciphersuite.
It is hard to be sure, because the Google's error description contains
no technical details.

Best regards,
