Anyone had issues with Gmail accounts and SMTP?
I have set up my latest site and this if the first client that uses a Gmail account e.g. @gmail.com. I've set up plenty Perch sites with SMTP and google apps and never had a problem however on my live server I keep getting "SMTP Error: Could not authenticate." in the Settings > Email test.
I've tried multiple tests and all of these work on the same site/server
- change SMTP to a google apps account
- ran a test with Mailtrap
- all forms are going into the DB fine.
I tried the following settings
define('PERCH_EMAIL_METHOD', 'smtp'); define('PERCH_EMAIL_HOST', 'smtp.gmail.com'); define('PERCH_EMAIL_AUTH', true); define('PERCH_EMAIL_SECURE', 'ssl'); // also tried "tls" define('PERCH_EMAIL_PORT', 465); // also tried "587"
The only thing I can think of is that Gmail has changed the privileges or there is a setting I am missing on the free account.
