Test mail not working because Google said

"Google just blocked someone from signing into your Google Account (TREEHOUSE MODERATOR DELETED PERSONAL INFORMATION) from an app that may put your account at risk. Less secure app Monday, March 6, 2017 11:08 PM (Hong Kong Standard Time) Hong Kong* Don't recognize this activity? If you didn't recently receive an error while trying to access a Google service, like Gmail, from a non-Google application, someone may have your password.


Are you the one who tried signing in? Google will continue to block sign-in attempts from the app you're using because it has known security problems or is out of date. You can continue to use this app by allowing access to less secure apps, but this may leave your account vulnerable."
