Using Gmail


Recommended Posts



Thought this was going to be straightforward but I keep getting the same error.


My script is (password has been changed but I know I used the correct one)


private string TodaysData
//while (1)
//   waituntil(06h + 86400)
   email.port = 587
   email.strConnectionType = "STARTTLS"
   email.strSSLProtocol = "TLSv1_2"
   email.strSubject="Daily Data (all m3)"   
   TodaysData= "Sent " + FormatDateTime("%d/%m/%Y %H:%M:%S",systime()) + " NZST" + Chr(10) + Chr(13)
   //TodaysData= TodaysData + "HRAP1InFlow    HRAP2InFlow     Inoculum1InFlow    Innoculum2InFlow    HRAP1OutFlow    HRAP2OutFlow    FinalOutFlow" + Chr(10) + Chr(13)
   //TodaysData= TodaysData + HRAP1InFlowDay[0] +"   " +HRAP2InflowDay[0] +"    "+HRAP3InFlowDAY[0] +    "+HRAP4InFlowDay[0] +"    "+ HRAP1OutFlowDay[0] +"    "+ HRAP2OutFlowDay[0] +"    "+ HRAPFinalOutFlowDay[0] + Chr(10) +Chr(13)
I realise that once working I can take all the settings and set once in the startup script.
The error I get is

Thanks for the quick response, set that but then got the error below. I logged on using Chrome and set my email account to use the less secure options and made sure that the login process was NOT a two step process. Made several attempts and got the same response.


Any ideas?
