@newbie I think i know the issue with Gmail, but not necessarily Hotmail… I’ll look into the hotmail side. Anyways, for Gmail: <— follow those instructions if you control all the applicable gmail accounts or have your customers do it to allow your server to properly send emails from gmail. Apparently, Google wants OAuth2.0 implementations instead of POP3, IMAP, and SMTP which a lot of Mail Client developers are fighting tooth and nail because of the implications from implementation. I will look at hotmail’s stuff but it’s probably similar.
