gmail is blocking easy smtp . . .

Hi there,

It looks like gmail is blocking easy smtp as not secure. I'm not sure how to proceed. Thank you.

You need to "Allow less secure apps" in your email settings.

Edit this setting here: https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps

I tried "allowing insecure apps" and it didn't work. What worked for me was going into Easy WP SMTP additional settings section and check marking the "allow insecure SSL certificates" and then it started working. It does highly recommend not checking it though.

I tried both of these suggestions, and neither worked for me. :-( I'm still getting an error.
