Hi,

To get a full email log, please edit the file core/classes/Core/Email.php in a text editor. Find the following line (line 109 using version 2.0.3):

$mail->SMTPDebug = SMTP::DEBUG_OFF;

Replace it with the following:

$mail->SMTPDebug = SMTP::DEBUG_LOWLEVEL;

Finally save and exit the file (and upload it back to your web host if necessary).

Then if you send a test email in the StaffCP -> Configuration -> Emails tab, you should see a full email log appear on screen with further information.

Hi,

Thanks for the log - Gmail has returned the error Username and Password not accepted, with a link to https://support.google.com/mail/?p=BadCredentials included.

I would recommend reading any tips provided by Google in the above link, and also to try using an app password if you are not already.

There are SMTP providers out there like Sendgrid, but I have never used any of them - you can try searching online for some alternatives.

If you are using a web host, they usually have their own SMTP server which you can use.

If you're attempting to setup smtp with a google account the solution is to configure 2FA on your google account which will allow you to setup and add an app password (no google admin account required). That password is then used in place of your actual password in the email setting of your forums configuration settings. Depending on the theme you're using (if NEXUS), there will be more issues with email verification after correctly setting up smtp.
