Sending e-mail from Lightroom is something that I just haven't bothered with in the past. But I tried to use it today, and Lightroom said it couldn't connect to the outgoing server. I'm using my Gmail account, and these are my settings:
I know that my e-mail address and password are correct. Do I need to change something in my outgoing server settings?
Hi Jim, the outgoing server settings are correct. You may need to check your Google settings. Depending on whether you have two-step verification or standard sign-in; you may need to set up an application specific password for LR with gmail. Check your inbox or spam for a message on refused attempt to authenticate.
Gmail works perfectly with LR for me and has been for a long time. If I remember correctly I requested a code for LR and it was either emailed to me, or sent to my cell phone. So I chose an app name e.g. “Lightroom on W10” and once I entered the code into the browser window I was able to validate my gmail P/W in LR.
Thanks, I got it. I had to change my settings in Gmail.
