I have installed the cart without any problems. But when setting up email I hit a brick wall. I have no mailserver on the server and dont intend to install one. So I have tried to use both gmail and yahoo smtp. From gmail I got a message that they had blocked the application as unsecure after my first testmail, even if I had allowed unsecure applications. After that no email went trough. From yahoo it just dont work.I have other applications that has no problem with gmail.
Can anything be done?

Hi Anders,

Gmail should work fine. Make sure you use an app specific password, not your actual gmail password. Security should be set to TLS.

What do you mean with app specific password?

I assume you didn't see the Maian Cart docs?

If you are using Gmail, DO NOT use your Gmail password. You MUST create an app specific password in your Google account and use that. Also, ONLY use SSL if you have SSL installed. If you don`t, you should use TLS. For the Gmail port ONLY use 465 or 587.

Gmail won't work with your actual gmail password. Make sure you also enable SMTP debugging in the cart. It is enabled by default, so it will write a log to the 'logs' folder. That can help identify mail problems.

Ok that worked. Perhaps there should be a line in the docs about it.
