Gmail - Less Secure Apps option removed - New method

(OP)
Over the last few months was doing restores on my router and BCM troubleshooting no recordings or emails, also bouncing back and forth between App, Google page, and BCM, so I forget the exact order/process so this is just a "tip".

New method is done using both 2 step verification and App Passwords.

In the BCM and/or Callpilot SMTP settings you will now use the "app password" instead of the email account password.

I am using Android.

On a device such as your mobile or tablet go to Play Store and download Google Authentication App

You will need to go to "Manage Your Google Account"
-Signing in to Google
-Security
-2 Step Verification - Turn this ON

Go to
-Signing in to Google
-Security
-App passwords
There is where you will create a name such as "BCM SMTP" and generate or eneter a password.

The Google Authentication App comes into play with QR codes etc when prompted.

If somebody wants to try and do a step by step that would be nice.


Edit: I found this simple step by step video
However no mention of Google Authenticator, perhaps because the video is 2 years old or.... I got lost in Google.

RE: Gmail - Less Secure Apps option removed - New method

Thanks. I had to do this recently on my FreePBX on a Raspberry Pi. Gmail doesn't allow third party apps to relay email as it considers them insecure. So you have to generate an app password to enable a device to access SMTP for features like voicemail to email, and any email notifications for major alarms, automated backups, etc.

Yes, this has been a big problem with the Avaya IP Office too. Some users have also had a lot of success with setting up an account on Outlook.com if the don't want to or can't use Gmail anymore.
