Google Gmail Oauth SMTP Extension

In this article, you will learn how to activate OAuth2 authentication in your Google account so that you can authenticate the Magento Mail SMTP plugin on your Magento Ecommerce site. By doing so, you can send emails from your Gmail or Google Workspace address using the plugin. The login details generated during this setup can also be utilized in other plugins that support OAuth2 authentication.

What is OAuth2?

OAuth2 (Open Authorization 2.0) is a standard protocol for authorization that allows users to grant limited access to their resources on one website or application (Gmail SMTP) to another website or application (Magento) without the need to share their username and password.

OAuth2 provides a secure and standardized way to delegate access to protected data, such as personal information or resources, from one application to another. It involves obtaining an access token from a third-party provider (SMTP Server), which can then be used to make API requests on behalf of the user, with the user’s permission.
