How to send emails from your Gmail account with SMTP with Qlik Application Automation
Sending an email over SMTP is only possible with the "Send Mail" block from the Mail connector. Do not confuse this with the native "Send Email" block in Blendr.io standalone environment.
With the new "Send Mail" block, it is now possible to send emails from your personal email account using SMTP.
For Gmail, execute the following steps to enable SMTP:
Enable IMAP: go to Settings -> all settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> enable IMAP
Enter the following settings when creating the connection:
sender email address: your full email address
password: your Gmail password
If your account doesn't use MFA, your personal Gmail password can be used. Else, you need to generate an app password. More information on that can be found here: Sign in with app passwords.
