I wrote the error manually, but it’s exactly the same as the error message I received.
There used to be a Google Account feature called Less secure apps that allowed you to toggle between allowing secure and less secure apps. What you’re trying to do would be classified as “less secure”. However, Google recently removed support for less secure apps as you can see in the above image. This means that you won’t be able to log in to the account from your program and thus are unable to send emails with this method.
OH NOOOOOO is there any way to send email without SMTP? I’ve googled some of it, including google cloud console, loom, and else. But those are way too complicated. I’ve tried using google cloud console, but I got stuck with the redirect URL. I don’t understand what URL I should put it in.
