G-mail Notifications Stopped [resolved]
« on: January 21, 2016, 06:34:22 am »

I noticed this in November while on a hunt.
I usualy had PCC send me a weather report each morning as local radio stations usualy didn't update their forecast until well after I was out the door.
I just figured my wife had turned off my PC and forgot about it.
Since no one has complained I never thought anymore about it.

While going over code for some of PCCs plugins I discovered X10SecurityWatch emails were now failing.
digging into this I discovered Gmail Changed security settings again.
This explains why I nolonger get emails from my offgrid IP camera something I'll be fixing today.
The fix:
go to https://support.google.com/mail/answer/14257?p=client_login&rd=1 and set up an app password for your windows PC and one for any other device that may be using Gmail.   
Gmail generates this for you so you just copy it to the apps email password box and save.

The app password is only for people who have two step verification. I don't but still can't get PCC or X10SW to send emails.

True.
I reread the page I don't remember doing this  :o ??? ::) :`) But must have in any case this solved the email issue for both X10SW and PCC for me.

I stumbled across this posting in my security camera forum and thought it might be helpful here.
