XF 1.5 Emails not being sent

    About a week ago I had the email system working. Today I noticed it was no longer working, and the only notable thing I have done is added a few domain records. One of these was an SRV Record and I believe the other was an A Record. Would this effect anything? I am using Google Apps if that helps, and through a few Google tests I think the SMTP is working.

    Also, this may not be the right place to ask, but is there a way I could send the email manually just to make sure it is working?

    I meant with Linux, sense it is not working with XenForo.

    Check your mail server logs, normally /var/log/mail.*

    There is an empty mail log that hasn't been updated sense 3 in the morning. There are other logs with info from when it was working about a week ago. I just tried sending emails with mailx I think it was, on CentOS, but I wasn't able to send any. That was likely due to not configuring it right though, as I don't think it would have worked in the first place if that were the case.

    I found this log,
    Code:

    #11 /var/www/html/XenForo/index.php(13): XenForo_FrontController->run()
    Is that of any use?

    It also mentions this: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/78754

    Line of the error: Abstract.php:431

    What's your mail server config @ admin.php?options/list/emailOptions
    If you're connecting to gmail directly to send your email, then visit gmail.com and ensure your admin.php?options/list/emailOptions logon/password credentials are working correctly

    I tried changing the password a few times and when I log in it tells me I changed my password recently which seems to be where the links in the error messages are leading to, I don't want to paste them because it seems like they could be used to get into my account.

    I've done similar things, trying it now.

    Still not working, error message starts with Email to nickk@miningdead.com failed: 5.7.14 followed by a link. When I click it it brings me to the Google Mail sign in with a password in. When I click enter it says the password was changed less than an hour ago and doesn't work. When I type in the password again it works. Maybe this message will go away after it has been longer? Still, if a bigger forum ran into this issue there would have to be another way than just waiting it out I would think?

    I found the solution, apparently it was with allowing secure apps in google. It's in a different area for apps accounts. Probably should have found it a lot earlier.

    Also, I'm not sure how to add a Solved tag, if that even exists on this forums.
