Hi @soniaKaur,

Yes you can.

You would have to change the setting in Gmail account to allow less secure apps.
Use gmail’s smtp port and server and your username and password.

Happy Automation!

Hi @soniaKaur

To resolve this issue, you can try the following steps:

  1. Double-check the username and password you are using for SMTP authentication. Make sure they are correct and match the credentials associated with your email account.
  2. Some email providers, such as Gmail, have security measures in place that may block access from certain applications. If you are using Gmail, you can try enabling the “Allow less secure apps” option in your account settings. However, be cautious as this option may reduce the security of your account.


Hi @soniaKaur
Follow the below steps to achieve sending an Email.

  1. In the Activities panel, search for “Send SMTP Mail Message” activity and drag it to the workflow.
  2. Configure the properties of the “Send SMTP Mail Message” activity:
  • Set the “From” property to the email address you want to send the email from.
  • Set the “To” property to the email address(es) of the recipient(s).
  • Set the “Subject” property to the subject of the email.
  • Set the “Body” property to the content of the email.
  • Set the “Host” property to the SMTP server address. For example, “” for Gmail.
  • Set the “Port” property to the SMTP server port number. For example, 587 for Gmail.
  • Set the “Username” and “Password” properties to the credentials of the email account you’re using to send the email.
  1. Save and run the workflow to send the email.
    Note: For Server name and Port number please take it by checking google for outlook and Gmail.

Hope it helps!!
