Great writeup. Saved me from having to manually find gmail certs. One thing I saw was that I had to use 587 for the port number and the correct selection for security is named StartTLS. Thanks again!

Thanks for the guide!

 

Just to check, i still need to enable the security feature in gmail to allow other applications correct?

Hi Team,

Just need to access your account settings (upper right of your email screens), then scroll down to security and turn the "Less secure app access" service On.
