Just Google enable less secure apps.

You need to log in to the account you are trying to use on the pi.
Google says i need to be a G suite user to allow me to change less secure apps
I've just got a normal gmail account

Re: Not sure how to or where to write the code. Hi

I've changed the 587 to 465 as that's what listed in the instructions.

Still doesn't work, bit I get a different error

If you are not following the instruction line for pi e then you need to explain in detail which instructions you are attempting to follow and what variations you are attempting , unless we know exactly what you are doing and how it's not working any attempt to help will be based on guess work.

Re: Not sure how to or where to write the code. Hi

I thought it was on github with instructions how to set up email? And it comes with a custom (old) version of raspbian? https://github.com/sbcshop/Spi-Box Some of that is what I've used. Although some is completely different. I'm not sure where a lot of that should be typed in relation on the scree...

Re: Setting spibox to use smtp with hotmail?

Told you I knew nothing.

It's a new sd card setup. As far as I knew it was the only thing I could install.

I'll take a better look tomorrow and get back to you.

Re: Setting spibox to use smtp with hotmail?

I'm even further stuck than you. I can't figure out how to get my Gmail address added. I've taken a look at the settings like you've got and I've added what I thought was right, but still nothing.

I know less than zero about computers and the bits I've seen on here to get the sound working seem far to adva...
