Hi,
I have set up my email settings exactly as they are set up in my email client, yet no emails are being sent out, not even the test emails.
I have set account, server, port (465) password and security SSL, all as they appear in my email client, but no reaction at all from the emails.

I'm afraid I'll have to cross-post as I have exactly the same problem with another script.
The logfile gives me this:

SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Network is unreachable (101)

I don't see where github and wiki come into it, as I use Gmail.
Adjustment: I just read in the help file about not using your Gmail password, but I have not found any Google app so far which lets me use its password for logging into my Gmail server on Maian Weblog.
I will definitely nee help on that.
Thanks.

Yes, you can`t use the Gmail password. It must be a Google App password. If you don`t understand this, you`ll need to contact Google or try a search on Google.

That's helpful.
I've searched myself stupid on Google, but if only I knew what to search for.

#4 msworld 29-09-2018 05:23:31

I searched for 'Google App Passwords'. It`s the first link. What have you been searching for? lol.

In your Google account go to:
https://security.google.com/settings/security/apppasswords

If you still can`t send emails, something is wrong with your connection details. If you are specifying SSL, make sure the SSL is correctly set up for the mail server, not just the domain. In most cases Google recommend TLS.

It's no use.
I have 2-step auth. enabled, I have a working app specific password, which I also use for the script, my imap settings are all correct, I have tried SSL on port 465, and TLS on port 587, all to no avail.
The test email never arrives.
sad

Phew,
this has been cleared up.
It is best not to use a Gmail address or a domain whose email is sent through Gmail or there will be endless trouble.
I had to resort to using a different email address, without using an app-related password and now everything works good as gold.

Now (at the risk of going off-topic) I would like to make a suggestion: it would be good if Maian Weblog offered a possibility to upload videos without going through Youtube or Vimeo or whatever (maybe by using good old HTML5 or something).

The reason I am requesting such a feature is because the aforementioned services sometimes have their own glitches, and it is sometimes easier to upload a video from your own machine and display it by means of some code and be free of any ads and other previews and that that pop up after your own video.

Maybe worth thinking about.
