We have upgraded the community system as part of the upgrade a password reset is required for all users before login in.

Send mail

  • I have not tested this, but did you try with TLS and 587 port?

    server = smtplib.SMTP('smtp.gmail.com', 587)
    server.login("your.email@gmail.com", "PASSWORD")
    msg = "YOUR MESSAGE!"
    server.sendmail("SENDER ADDRESS", "RECIPIENT ADDRESS", msg)

  • Did you enable the "less secure apps" feature on your account as instructed by @chris-mccaslin?

    This is what I was trying to avoid.
    Can't help thinking if the SSL part of the information passed to the server could be included in the portion it needs which is "secure connection = yes" it would meet the criteria for Googles security. But how to incorporate it in the python script is what I am looking for if it is possible.

    Just guessing based on what was read in what is needed when attempting to connect to SMTP server.
    Gmail SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
    Gmail SMTP password: Your Gmail password
    Gmail SMTP port (TLS): 587
    Gmail SMTP port (SSL): 465
    Gmail SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes<----how does one incorporate this part into the python script?

    I am assuming you already have it ( I don't know python the best)
    but what I make out of it is your making a socket and setting it to be SMTP_SSL and connect to google on the ssl port,

    server = smtplib.SMTP_SSL('smtp.gmail.com:465')

    Also try this i justt noticed you did not have ttls enabled

    import smtplib
    sender = 'Myemail@gmail.com'
    toaddrs = 'Myemail@gmail.com'
    message = """From: Test send from omega
      To: Recipient < Cold@hotmail.com >
     Subject: SMTP e-mail test
    This is a test e-mail message.
    password = 'password'
    server = smtplib.SMTP_SSL('smtp.gmail.com:587')
    server.starttls() #required by google 
    server.sendmail(sender, toaddrs, message)
     #if this does not work, then try this

    try this non ssl example if above does not work

      # Credit to pythonforbegginers.com
      # http://www.pythonforbeginners.com/google/sending-emails-using-google
      import smtplib
      # Specifying the from and to addresses
      fromaddr = 'fromuser@gmail.com'
      toaddrs  = 'touser@gmail.com'
      # Writing the message (this message will appear in the email)
      msg = 'Enter you message here'
      # Gmail Login
      username = 'username'
      password = 'password'
      # Sending the mail  
      server = smtplib.SMTP('smtp.gmail.com:587')
      server.sendmail(fromaddr, toaddrs, msg)

  • @Rudy-Trujillo you must enable the less secure apps feature directly on your Google account, you cannot work around it just with the Python code.
