It seems that virtually all e-mail providers are requiring log in security that is not supported on the ELK. I was using G-mail with less secure access but that does not seem to work anymore. I switched to my ATT account which works but they are going to require OAuth soon.

 

I do have an always on server running Win 7 and one solution seems to be to install a local e-mail server but I'm hoping there is something simpler.

 

Seems like the entire Elk installed base will have an issue so I don't understand why Elk will not address this.

Google Gmail allows you to add what they call an app password for devies that do not allow two step security. I use it with my elk. Look in your account settings under security.

I had to go look that info up before posting it here, it's been a long time since I set mine up. I also programmed the Elk to send me a "good morning" email every morning in order to keep the account alive. Some free accounts get deleted after a long period of inactivity.
