Require: IP-Symcon >= 2.2
SMTP is a module of IP-Symcon that can send e-mails. The module is set up as an instance in IP-Symcon. It can be found under Manufacturer "None" and "Send Email (SMTP)". The individual properties can be found in the table.
In order to send a message to one or more e-mail addresses, the SMTP_SendMailEx function must be used.
The emails cannot be specially formatted. /n /r are functional but any formatting such as bold, italics etc will not work. A PHPMailer, for example, must be used for this instead.

Gmail does not allow direct access with the username and password without further settings. With these settings, it depends on whether two-factor authentication is activated.
For use without two-factor authentication, "Access through less secure apps" must be activated in the administration of the Google account under "Security". A direct link would be myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps .
When access is enabled, it looks like this. Username and password can now be used to log in.
When using two-factor authentication, an app password must be assigned in the administration of the Google account under "Security" in the "Sign in to Google" section.
Click on the line "App passwords".
A new password with an individual name can be generated in the overview.
The generated password must then be entered in IP-Symcon.
