Email from Google: Review blocked sign-in attempt


(Tobias Eigen) #1

I have been using a google apps account for years now as our mail-in address for discourse. Today I got a warning on the dashboard:

Which led me to this error in the log:

which then led me to this cryptic email from google:

I guess two questions:

  1. Is there any way for me to verify that this less secure app in Clifton, NJ is my discourse site hosted on digital ocean?

  2. I allow access to less secure apps for this account already, so is there anything for me to do here? The error appeared only once in my log and email seems to be flowing.

Thanks! :seedling:

I know this is not the answer to your questions but since I just changed to direct mail delivery, I can’t help but think: I’m glad I did.

nice - it does answer the unspoken question, though, which is “is there a better way to handle incoming mail”. I will explore. Thanks! :sunflower:
