    Hi,
    I am trying to use Blat and gmail to send emails. I have installed and configured also STunnel.
    When I try to send an email, I get the following error:
    <<<getline<<< 530-5.5.1 Authentication Required. Learn more at
    530 5.5.1 Read Gmail messages on other email clients using IMAP - Gmail Help o20sm14635268wro.6 -
    gsmtp

    I have followed the instructions above but I still get the same error message. Can you help me there please?

    Thanks

    HI Sami,

    Double check that your email client is trying to authenticate with a working user/pass when trying to send email. Also, if you have Google Authenticator on your account you'll need to create an app password using the link above. The problem is that Google is not receiving a valid user/pass from your email program when you're trying to send email.

    Hi Popowich,

    As mentioned, I am using blat program but I am not very familiar with all the IT programs and config, so I will need detailled explanations step by step ;-)

    I have set up in regedit the config on the screen shot attached where I set up the username and password so that blat can use these credentials.

    I have created an app password as you mentioned. For this, I added an app name called blat and then I got a password. My question is where should I put this password now?

    Thanks
