I’m trying to get Groov to send an email alert using a Gmail account. I’ve tried it on three different Groov boxes at three separate locations. One worked fine. The second I had to tweak the Gmail security settings to get it to work. The third doesn’t work at all no matter what I try.
Keep in mind that all the settings are identical on all three boxes and they’re all using the same Gmail account. There are no outbound firewall restrictions. The Internet connection is provided by identical Cradlepoint cellular modems in three separate geographical locations but with the same carrier, Verizon.
I was able to get the third one to work using a mail server that I support, not Gmail, but I had to setup relaying which is a big no-no so that’s not a viable solution. It does however, demonstrate that the Groov is capable of sending email.
Anybody have any thoughts as to why this won’t work?
