I installed the macOS Catalina 10.15.3 on my unsupported MBP.

After installing the os, I cannot setup the Mail app. An error message showed that "unable to verified account name or password". The Autofill Passwords in Safari are not synced either.

I do not know if it's because I installed the os using a patcher or because I turned on the build-in Firewal, or other reasons.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Update: I tried to setup the Mail app again. The mailboxes are okay now. But I'm still looking for a way to "sync the Autofill Passwords" in my Safari.

If you go to a web, app or something and it offers you a password then they are there.
If that is the case then go to spotlight in settings and make sure 'system preferences' is selected in search results.
If it isn't, then passwords won't show up in safari.

Spotlight in Settings? What do you mean?
