Gmail SMTP Magento

Log into your Magento Store and add the configuration above

Gmail, OAuth2 and “Allow less secure apps”

As of December 2014, in order to better secure customer’s email account Google has implemented new authentication mechanism called XOAUTH2 based on OAuth2 specification for access to their various services, including Gmail. This change can break both SMTP and IMAP access to Gmail or G-suite, and you may receive various authentication failures (“5.7.14 Please log in via your web browser and then try again” or “Username and Password not accepted”) while testing your configuration from our extension. Included in the error message is a link to https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?answer=78754, which provide a list of possible causes, or https://support.google.com/mail/?p=BadCredentials, which for the most part does not provide enough information. Currently our smtp extension does not support OAuth2 which would take a lot more time to setup.
