Support / Re: Using Gmail for the admin account?

Quote from: ahrasis – If I remember correctly, one must choose unsafe / unsecured in google account settings to make it work with gmail. Also try using port 587 instead.

About the client id field issue mentioned in other thread relating to sendgrid, I don't think it is relevant with google mail account, but I haven't tested this recently either.

Thank you, I thought I'd read something about this

"Less secure apps & your Google Account
Starting on September 30, 2024, less secure apps, third-party apps, or devices that have you sign in with only your username and password will no longer be supported for Google Workspace accounts. For exact dates, visit Google Workspace Updates. To continue to use a specific app with your Google Account, you’ll need to use a more secure type of access that doesn’t share password data. Learn how to use Sign in with Google.

If an app or site doesn’t meet our security standards, Google might block anyone who’s trying to sign in to your account from it. Less secure apps can make it easier for hackers to get in to your account, so blocking sign-ins from these apps helps keep your account safe.'

Gmail apparently requires email "clients" to be registered with them and validated as OAUTH2 compliant (with their interpretation of OAUTH2). This is a relatively new 'thing' with them, and apparently their 'compliance' standards are unique in that regard. I'm not sure this is your problem, but it's entirely possible Gmail isn't going to work as a mail handler for ElkArte .

(IMHO, not having gmail as your mail handler is not a bad thing..)

You might check this thread since Denis just got SendGrid working...

Folks I've tried everything I can

Current settings
Queue enabled
smtp.gmail.com
Client My email @gmail.com
port 465
StartTLS is unchecked my research indicated gmail may not support it though it does support TLS
Username My email @gmail.com
App password
App password

Tested working at https://www.gmass.co/smtp-test

Registration emails however are not being received.

Any thoughts?

Greetings to everyone ! I am happy to say that the issue has now been resolved finally ! After talking with SendGrid support for a couple of days we were finally able to verify the error after they looked into their backend error logs!

The issue was caused by verifying my subdomain which was a mistake ! After verifying my main domain instead of the subdomain the email finally went through !

My domain is now verified and capable to send SMTP mail!

Let this be a guide for future encounters people may have ! Be sure to verify your main domain since SendGrid services can not verify subdomains as a sender identity!

Cheers and good luck !  :partying_face  :partying_face

And thanks for the help gentlemen ! @ahrasis @Spuds @Steeley
