G-Mail block emails from Reckon Accounts Business 2016
ID: 5379 Category: Accounts - Business Range - Desktop & Hosted (previously QuickBooks) Status: Resolved Views: 1181


Question:


Why does G-Mail block emails sent from Reckon Accounts Business 2016?  I get an error: “Password Incorrect”.





Solution:

Emailing through a web-based email service is a new feature in Reckon Accounts Business 2016.  For basic configuration please see the In-Product help Index.

Google security will block sign-in attempts from some apps or devices that do not use modern security standards, as these apps and devices are easier to break into.  You may get the error:  “Password Incorrect”.

You will need to allow less secure apps and devices to use the G-mail system.

 

Detailed Instructions.

  1. Log in to your Gmail Account;

  2. Click the Account picture or avatar at the top right - then click Google account;

  3. Go to Sign in & Security.

  4. Scroll down to Apps with Accounts access.

  5. Scroll down till you see Allow less secure apps

  6. Select Allow less secure Apps: On

Note: If you have 2 steps verification settings enabled, on your Google account, this option is not available.
