Soon we will require Google account authentication for sending emails in the domain and we will enable it for Google Workspace accounts

From 30/05/2022, sending emails from accounts in the domain will require authentication with a Google account, and the traditional login to the SMTP server only with the login and password of the Google account will stop working. If you have a configured e-mail account in the domain in the IdoSell administration panel, be sure to read the content below.

Connection with the login and password to the SMTP server from 30/05/2022 will not be possible. The access option for less trusted applications that allows this operation will also stop working. From 30/05/2022, to send emails via the account, from the level of third-party applications such as IdoSell, it will be necessary to authenticate with a Google account.

In its announcement, Google said: "To help keep your account secure, starting May 30, 2022, ​​Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password."

IdoSell will be ready for this change, but your reaction is required in the email account settings

Therefore, in mid-May 2022, we will introduce a change in the IdoSell administration panel that allows you to authenticate the sending of emails in the domain by logging in with a Google account. We will inform you about this change in the next post on our blog, where we will also publish all the necessary information on what will be necessary on your side.

We are working on a change that will require you to react and change settings in the configuration of e-mail accounts, but we want it to be a minimum of steps to be performed.

We will make a change for accounts, but what about Gmail accounts in Workspace?

For Google Workspace e-mail accounts, the requirement to authenticate with a Google account has not yet received from Google the date from which it will be required. Regardless of that, IdoSell will be ready to handle authentication with a Google account also for e-mail accounts operating under the Google Workspace service.
