Brizy contact form option for gmail account
When setting up the contact form, i've tried using the WP option it say sent but does not send, I've also tried using the gmail option but also says it sent but it doesn't. So I think i need to go into gmail and allow less secure app and create app password but this such a pain for clients to do and i normally cannot get access to the accounts. Is there a work around for this for a user to receive to a gmail account address without it being blocked that you know of or a work around that can be used so they can receive leads? thank you thank you
When you send out email notifications, email servers are likely to mark messages sent this way as SPAM, so these messages may not reach the recipient. Please consider these best practices to avoid having your mail rejected by mail servers.
1. Subject: Please don't omit the subject line. Give a meaningful subject. You can include a subject, such as "Contact Form."
2. From Email: Make sure the 'From" Email' you use has the same domain as your website. The 'From Email' field on a form hosted at CNN.com can be email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
3. From Name: This field must not be left empty. Give a meaningful 'From Name'
Looks like Google has discontinued the less secure option to send email through their SMTP servers. Your only option now is to use a Google App Password. It will take only a minute to generate a Google App Password; here is the procedure https://jmp.sh/z6QIaX7S
Try setting up Email Notification through the Gmail option using your personal Gmail account and your Google app password initially. It you are able to receive email notifications, then you can request your client to replace your personal Gmail with his. You can also share the procedure to setup the app password with him.
