Technical Information

Using Google’s free email with MACC products?

by MACC’s Technical Support Team

We are reaching out to our customers to make sure you are aware of Google’s decision to no longer support signing in to third-party apps with a Google Account. This appears to only apply to users of Google’s free service at this time and Google plans to announce removing it for paid users at a later date. They previously announced this function will no longer work as of May 30, 2022.

If you are using Google’s free email service to send emails from MACC products, please be aware that the ability to send emails may be disrupted now that we are past May 30.

In addition, Google has also announced that they will require businesses to upgrade to a paid version in order to continue using email services. Google advises companies to upgrade to Google Workspace before August 1, 2022 in order to avoid account suspension.

Please take a moment to review your Google account to ensure you aren’t at risk of email services being disrupted. Once your account has been upgraded to Google Workspace, you will have the ability to setup the Google Workspace SMTP relay service for use within MACC products.

We have provided some additional information below, but feel free to reach out to your MACC Technical Support Team with any questions you may have.
