Email from DCS-5030L
« on: June 12, 2017, 06:58:28 AM »

Why does the camera need to know the password of my email account in order to send an email to it?

It needs the PW for the SMTP service so it can send and use that server directly.

Ok.  I am currently attempting to configure the camera to use gmail (smtp.gmail.com) but am not having any success.  Has anyone successfully used gmail here?

I was able to do it on the second day of attempts.  On the first day, Google shut down logins from that device due to many errors.  I changed a setting to a "less secure" mode, whatever that means, and was able to use its smtp server.  Thanks!
