GMail Less Secure Apps

Quickmacros does still work with GMail, but a user must enable less secure apps to do so via

Here is the current page for settings for GMail:

So I'm betting the issue is with "Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587"

So as a work around right now to keep my account more secure, I logged into GMail, enable less secure apps, Run QM code, then disable less secure apps. 

Otherwise QM output looks like:

Select All      Help
Error (RT) in <open ":1474: /295">MAIL:  [Error: Connection failure] (0x72)
    Server response: 534-5.7.14 <

534-5.7.14 then try again.

.    <help #IDP_ERR>?
Note: I removed the plt part of the string and replaced with *****

P.S. I hope all has been well for you!
Gmail blocks apps that don't use OAuth authentication.
Explained here:

QM email functions cannot use it.
It is probably possible, but need to create new email functions. I'll try it later.
