Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I am on v8, trying to configure imap outgoing and incoming.
I am using the exact same settings as in thunderbird account.
Servername : smtp.googlemail.com port: 465 username: firstname.lastname@example.org Password: ** Connection Security: SSL/TLS
I keep getting an authentification error.
I know that my credential are good, I have tried it. I also tried to do it with my gmail.com email adress, same issue. I have also tried with my local isp settings and it works.
The problem seem to be with gmail only !
Anyone have faced this issue ?
Authentication failure may arise due to Invalid response code received from server ( Due to error in the SMTP Server name).So check your smtp server name is correct .And if that's right ,check your username and password.
For outgoing Sever:
Server name : smtp.gmail.com
User name: email@example.com
If this doesn't Work,Then you may be under proxy.
If you are under a proxy
1) Just remove your username and password and click on test connection. see if your connection succeeds
2)Then use this IP 188.8.131.52 instead of smtp.gmail.com
If still it's not working means that the port number of 465 is not opened for your IP. Type 'telnet 184.108.40.206 465' in your command line.It should Work
If you generally need to approve a new account sign-in whenever you
use GMail on another app, then your solution is to create an App
Great link here: Google: Sign in using App Passwords (https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833?hl=en)
In case that link vanishes, here is the basics of what it says:
When you sign up for 2-Step Verification, we normally send you verification codes. However, these codes do not work with some apps and devices, like Outlook (or Odoo!!). Instead, you’ll need to authorize the app or device the first time you use it to sign in to your Google Account by generating and entering an App password.
- Visit your App passwords (https://security.google.com/settings/security/apppasswords) page. You may be asked to sign in to your Google Account.
- At the bottom, click Select app and choose the app you’re using.
- Click Select device and choose the device you’re using.
- Select Generate.
- Follow the instructions to enter the App password (the 16 character code in the yellow bar) on your device.
- Select Done.
Once you are finished, you won’t see that App password code again. However, you will see a list of apps and devices you’ve created App passwords for.
The answer to that problem is to create and use a dedicated "consumer" GMail account, without any special features.
Choosing a suitable name that clarifies its purpose might be a good idea.
