    Looks like you have things set up the way Google's Help Center wants.

    Check with your host to make sure you can connect securely to Google.

    If that is set correctly, then you will need to talk to Google.

    Please let us know the outcome as your settings are showing what is recommended by https://www.zen-cart.com/wiki/index....Email_Problems

    It was the issue of gmail blocking less secure app.
    I turned it ON in Gmail (less secure app login) and it got done

    What was their definition of "less secure app"?
    Was this simply an "allow less secure apps" button or name the "less secure app" action?
    Asking for a friend.

    Google sends an instant threat/notification to your recovery email and your given email with a button Take Action, then we can Turn ON less secure app

    A little further information as I was concerned about just what was a "less secure app." Some payment module? Zen cart itself?

    Turns out Google even considers its own GMail as a less secure app IF the app accessing GMail is using the username and password of the account.

    In other words anything other than a DIRECT log in to GMail is considered "less secure."
