Connect Google Account with SMTP

Google has officially begun phasing out the Less Secure App Access option in favor of using built in integrations which means for most people, it is no longer possible to connect a Google account using our SMTP connection option.

For more information, check Google's Guide here. Google has begun phasing out these settings. You may notice the guide includes steps to enable this option, but if you no longer have the option and it was not enabled in the past, you will not be able to enable this. Google cannot provide access to this feature anymore and Mailshake doesn't have a way to override this option.

We recommend using the built in Google integration that uses Google's OAuth 2.0 which is what Google now favors for connecting to third party apps. Follow the setup steps in this guide.
