I don’t know how many emails you plan on sending monthly …. this might be a solution for you — mailgun. (mailgun.com <http://mailgun.com/>)
they allow 10,000 free emails per month and charge very little beyond that.
we allow people to have their own mail services with our product. The amount of time we spent trying to help with customers that chose gmail or office 365 (google/microsoft) was abysmal. As you point out,. its truly frustrating they kind of stranglehold they have and the rules that they impose . only xx emails ber minute , yy per day and zz per month, but only if you stand on your head and sing a song.
in the end, way too much time supporting those kinds of companies that are using limited features to keep you tied within their orbit.
so, when customers have issues, we just put them on mailgun. our problems stop. so do theirs.

> I just want to send emails.. is there not a solution that is relatively simple? I dont know WHY I had to set my google setting to Less Secure Apps.. I think it was because I have my own mail server and my emails weren’t getting through, so we had to set up Google as our proxy or whatever.. as if we’re sending from Google.. then my emails would get through otherwise ISP’s blocked them.. I think that’s what it was.. my God, what a mess.. you’d think you’d be able to send emails without all this fuss.

>> The google solution seemed to work well in Python, Xero less so!
