not able to send or receive email notification for backups

Hello,

I am trying to use XSIbackup for the first time and executed the command with --test-mode=true to test the email notification. I am using my gmail account here. However I keep on getting the below messages.

===============================================================================

I can login to my gmail account through browser. In the XSI backup command I am giving the same password in quotes so to me it looks I am doing everything correctly but still wondering why it is not accepting my credentials. Kindly assist.

Re: not able to send or receive email notification for backups

You do need to enable Less Secure Apps: https://support.google.com/accounts/ans … 0255?hl=en for your gmail.com account.
You can find all the details here https://33hops.com/xsibackup-smtp-client.html#gmail
