    Asked by pearlvos on February 12, 2017 at 10:38 AM


     I received the email below and would like to know how to fix the error.  I would like the emails coming from our form to be tied to our gmail account.  How do I do that?  The setting I used were as follows

    Host name: smtp.gmail.com

    Port: 587

    Username: ************@gmail.com

    Password: ********

    Security Protocol: TLS


    The gmail account is set to have “Less secure Apps”

    That's auto-generated email that is sent if there are some changes in SMTP settings. 

    Anyhow, I suggest you removing the existing SMTP settings and adding again. Also, add that newly created email as a sender in your form. 

    You can refer to these guides:



    If the issue persists please let us know.

    Thank you!
