Send a test mail failure
« on: June 15, 2018, 05:55:35 AM »

Hi, I stopped receiving emails from my cameras so I went into the settings. I haven't changed anything. the mail server is still set to smtp.gmail.com
the port is still at 465 etc. When I press test I get the email failure message.  Any ideas as to why?

Thanks

Link>Welcome!

What model cameras do you have?

  • What Hardware version is your DCS? Look at the sticker behind or under the camera.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DCSs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What Mfr and model is the main host router?

Thanks for responding. Cameras are DCS-942L firmware version 1.27. I am in Canada.

The router at home is a Netgear R7000, but this is also happening at my work camera which is set up with different router.

I went to GMAIL settings, I don't see any apps been blocked. Anything I can reset? I have even tried switching to my hotmail account and adjusting the stmp settings in my dlink interface and still get errors.

There have been no changes firmware/software wise on any legacy camera that changed the email snapshot behaviour. A few things you can try:

Instead of SSL-TLS:Port 465, you can try STARTTLS:Port 587. Gmail supports that as well and you can give that a shot.

If you use gmail, you will want to check your gmail settings. This FAQ may help.

Well well it was that.  "Allow less secure apps: ON: in Google settings was turned off. The moment I turned it on everything works. 
Weird because I never touched anything. I wonder if it was  a recent Google update that turned it off.

Thanks guys much appreciate all the help.

Keep an eye on that if you notice this again. Google may re-enable it even though you disabled it.  :-\

Enjoy.
