Free GMAIL account not working anymore?

Just after some confirmation as I have gotten a few contradictory results in my own checking.

Is it no longer possible to send emails from concreteCMS with Gmail SMTP with a free gmail.com email address??

Happy if the answer is no, just would like some back up. Cheers

It is still possible.

Did you enable multi authentication? (Which I highly recommend to do so).

If yes, you need to set-up app password for SMTP via My Account section
https://myaccount.google.com/security

I just googled it and found the nice instruction. (didn’t read in-depth, though)

Good luck.

thanks, that was the missing point. It wont allow you to create an app password unless you have multi Authentication.

This allowed me to get it to work, albeit very slowly , takes a while to send.

thanks for the hint @katz515
