    I have set up autoresponder email sending out of my gmail but google has been blocking the sending of email and alerted me of "critical security issue" resulting from jotform's access to my email.

    Could you please provide a solution for this problem? Thank you.

    I hope you're doing well and thanks for reaching out.

    This appears to be happening on Google's side. Google requires the account to have less secure apps enabled before it can allow the email account to be accessed by a 3rd party.

    Please refer to this guide for more information.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Best regards,
