Getting error while sending email through Gmail SMTP - "Please log in via your web browser and then try again. 534-5.7.14" [closed]
Check whether there is network access from CSO to the SMTP server. Check whether the firewall is blocking SMTP traffic to SMTP server or whether the ports are blocked.
I'm having problems with gmail smtp server. I already read many posts here in StackOverflow about that subject.
The best post I found about test the connection is this one.
Although it is very well explained the error I'm getting I couldn't find a answer: Google SMTP just says "Please log in via your web browser and then try again". I'm completely sure that the password and the email (both in base64) are well encoded.
As you can see here, in this image:
there is just one difference I can notice: the firstname.lastname@example.org and password is sent in two steps. In the link above the guy sends both at the same time. Google didn't accepted that. But the fact is, I write auth login Y29udGF0... (user in base64, googles responds: ) 334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6 (wich means "Password: ") YzQ2MjJmNWVi.... (paste my password in base64 and hit "enter")
Then Goggle says: Please log in via your web browser and then try again. 534-5.7.14 Learn more at mailcot
And I'm going through all this problem because @MediaTemple and @DreamHost are not working with PHPMailer. I already use PHPMailer for a long time ago, in so many different hosts, using SMTP but failed with (mt) and Dreamhost. Now I'm in middle of a project that it >must< work on these two hosts.
