gmail smtp server

Post by kamikazebaa »

what did i do wrong in this configuration?

Use smtp: yes
server : smtp.gmail.com
port:587
auth: login
smtp user: [email protected]
smtp pass: the thing i got from app passwords in google
and all the check marks here are set to no

this all worked in an smtp tester but not in phpbb, can anyone help me?

Do these work? I did a search and someone was able to get it working with the settings below.
SMTP server address: tls://smtp.gmail.com
SMTP server port: 465
