GV-VMS email alerts not working with Gmail

Postby UVS_Christine » November 3rd, 2016, 9:27 am

Issue:
When setting up email alerts in GV-VMS with Gmail, the Test Email gives a "Failed to connect to SMTP server" even though all settings are correct.

Workaround:
When GV-VMS sends the Test Email, Gmail will detect it as someone trying to sign into your Google account.

Make sure to allow access for less secure apps in your Google account settings, and run the Test Email again.
