Email Setup 6.1

I'm trying to setup email in 6.1, I've used all the same settings from when I was in v6.0 (when the email was working). But after upgrading to 6.1 I keep getting an error every time I try to send an email, screenshot is attached. I've never seen this before. I've tried 2 different email addresses, one of them a Gmail address the other is from my own domain- both worked on v6.0 but I get nothing on 6.1.

Though setting up email isn't necessary, it is convenient since my display is remote and I like getting a notification when the show starts/ends. 


Same issue here on 6.1. Sorry I don't have a solution... just letting you know you're not the only one  ;D


I just tried it on both of my FPP instances.  Both are set to use a gmail account that has an app specific password for the FPP instances.  That has worked in the past (not sure how recently I have tested that - but it does send me an E-Mail upon startup).  Both FPP instances showed the E-Mail sent from the E-Mail setup page when sending a test E-Mail, but I did not receive any E-Mails for startup or the test.

Google and Microsoft changed their SMTP authentication requirements last May.  Has been a PITA for a lot of folks.  In general the @k6ccc link displayed will have to be followed in order for a device to send mail now.  Microsoft will have a similar link.  I don't think yahoo's requirements have changed yet.

Update:  After my cup of coffee, I realized 6.0 was released after this date, and everyone most likely is already aware of this.  You are welcome for the worthless response! :)
