Mikel mail with gmail stmp, security issue


#1

Greetings,

I’m trying to get the mikel mail gem working with stmp to gmail. When
I
attempt to send a mail I get the ‘check_auth_response’ error.
(NET::SMTPAuthenticationError).

When I go to gmail it then says that there has been an attempt to sign
in
from an app that does not meet modern security standards.

Is it possible to have the mikel mail gem meet these security
standards?

Is it better just to make an smtp server on my local machine if this
is
only going to be used for sending mails? If so are there any easy
suggestions?

Thanks!

your gmail account?
