Laravel sending mail fails on droplet: 535-5.7.8 Username and Password not accepted
I’ve build a Laravel project, but I’m stuck in sending emails using Gmail in the droplet. Locally it’s working fine.
I’m getting this error:
Expected response code 250 but got code "535", with message "535-5.7.8 Username and Password not accepted
I’ve tried to remove 2-way auth, setting “less secure app on on your gmail account”, but nothing helps
I’m using Ubuntu 18.04.
Settings in Laravel:
MAIL_DRIVER=smtp MAIL_HOST=smtp.gmail.com MAIL_PORT=587 MAIL_USERNAMEemail@example.com MAIL_PASSWORD=xxx -> App password MAIL_FROM_ADDRESSfirstname.lastname@example.org MAIL_FROM_NAME=xxx MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls
As it is working locally, do I have to add some extra setting for Digital Ocean or my setup/firewall (UFW) ?
Hope you can help me. Thanks in advance!
