mikel mail with gmail stmp, security issue

Greetings,

I’m trying to get the mikel mail gem working with stmp to gmail. When I attempt to send a mail I get the ‘check_auth_response’ error. (NET::SMTPAuthenticationError).

When I go to gmail it then says that there has been an attempt to sign in from an app that does not meet modern security standards.

Is it possible to have the mikel mail gem meet these security standards?

Is it better just to make an smtp server on my local machine if this is only going to be used for sending mails? If so are there any easy suggestions?

Thanks!

This is just a guess, but do you need an application password to use with
your gmail account?
