Trying to use googles SMTP


(CompRev) #1

Im trying to use googles smtp settings but they dont work?
Im using
smtp.gmail.com as the smtp server.
and the email and password as username and password.
But for some reason I do not get the confirm email when I am supposed to setup Discourse

Using Discourse with free GMail would be a violation of their ToS. Don’t do it.

Are you on G Suite?

Okay, then does anything interesting turn up when you troubleshoot?

Why not use something like Sendgrid, it’s cheap and their free tier is very giving. Another option is Amazon SES, I think it’s like $0.01/10k emails sent.
