Thanks Kevin

The method you posted below is what I’m using, google tells the app to go pound sand. I suspect the key is that app password portion of the post you point out. I’ll try that in the AM.

The part that does cause me some pause is IBM i is happily sending email with that account with no issues.

 IIRC, the only tricky thing you need is to get an APP password for the
account you're using.

This article shows how to do it using pure Python:

I'm guessing the same would work for Flask-Mail by setting

MAIL_SERVER to smtp.gmail.com
MAIL_PORT to 465
MAIL_USE_TLS to True
MAIL_USERNAME to your gmail address
MAIL_PASSWORD to your app password

So, what is the magic elixir needed to get a valid google account to
accept
an email from Python (with flask-mail) and send it out?



Lots of 2 year old discussions on the internet, but I've not seen
anything
recent enough (over two years old) to pay attention to.
