all my settings of gmail is okay, still this error is showing .
A couple of scenarios that may cause this:
- If you’re using gmail. You will need to enable “less secure apps” or generate an “application password” when 2factor authentication is enabled
- If your server is not using SSL port should be 143
- If your provider has 2factor authentication you may need to consult their documentation
Hi!, maybe you should check if gmail is blocking your access you can see this on security on your gmail account,
another possible solution is to enable less secure apps and also enable POP/IMAP on gmail settings
let me know if it was helpfull
Follow the links below. There are many solutions suggested.
all settings are done, i changed port from 993 to 143 and it is showing 'timeout exception"
Please increase the timeout and retry.
not working bro
there is no option now in gmail to enable or disable less secure app. what to do bro
unable to see on/off option for less secure apps. its no more available in gmail i think as its not showing
is there any solution for that?
Did you try enabling less secure apps
hi. there is no on/off option to choose in less secure apps, i have already stated above
@ydash999 Can you check the pwd variable contains right password
yeah it has right password.i had to execute the process by turning on 2step auth and creating app password, as the less secure option has no option of on/off .
i am unable to access, unable to log in to google workspace(console) as it is not business mail id i think
Go to Manage Google Account → Security → Scroll down and there you will find an option of less secure apps → enable it
From the comments I see is gmail, so stick with 993
Are you using 2-step verification? If that’s the case you need to generate an application password
Otherwise, if there is no 2-step verification and you still don’t have the less secure apps. Work with your administrator who should be able to grant you the required permissions
before i think 6 month, less secure option(yes/no) was available. i dont know why it is not now. yeah i turn out to use the other way i.e application password method. thankss all
