  1. Awesome jarekszegarek, Well your tip started the chain to help me find out why I couldn't get my email's to work. I hadn't realized about the App Password setting because nothing came up to alert me. But once I changed that registry setting, the notice for App Passwords came into play. The rest is history. I hope this will help other's who are and will have an issue with emailing from within the software.
  2. That line was already there but with a value of "0" so I have changed that to "1" and setup the email settings again. Still does not work but I get a different error message now. "EMAIL AUTHENTICATION USERNAME OR PASSWORD NOT ACCEPTED: I have checked the password is correct and I am entering my username as "xxxxx@gmail.com" Have tried ticking the extra options and un-ticking also but I did see that this could also be a problem with my gmail account as I have 2 factor verification turned on: Any Idea what I can try next.. Have found that there is another item that must be fixed as well. APP PASSWORDS: Sign in with App Passwords Tip: App Passwords aren’t recommended and are unnecessary in most cases. To help keep your account secure, use "Sign in with Google" to connect apps to your Google Account. An App Password is a 16-digit passcode that gives a less secure app or device permission to access your Google Account. App Passwords can only be used with accounts that have 2-Step Verification turned on. When to use App Passwords Tip: iPhones and iPads with iOS 11 or up don’t require App Passwords. Instead use “Sign in with Google.” If the app doesn’t offer “Sign in with Google,” you can either: Use App Passwords Switch to a more secure app or device Create & use App Passwords If you use 2-Step-Verification and get a "password incorrect" error when you sign in, you can try to use an App Password. Go to your Google Account. Select Security. Under "Signing in to Google," select App Passwords. You may need to sign in. If you don’t have this option, it might be because: 2-Step Verification is not set up for your account. 2-Step Verification is only set up for security keys. Your account is through work, school, or other organization. You turned on Advanced Protection. At the bottom, choose Select app and choose the app you using Select device and choose the device you’re using Generate. Follow the instructions to enter the App Password. The App Password is the 16-character code in the yellow bar on your device. Tap Done. Tip: Most of the time, you’ll only have to enter an App Password once per app or device, so don’t worry about memorizing it. Because of the 2 factor verification I needed to create a specific APP PASSWORD. Once I created this password and finished the process I am now able to email HURRAY, FINALLY FIXED THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE STARTING POINT.
  3. Thank you for the response.. I will submit this request. On a side note....... Are we able to (or is there some other blank data fields) where we can enter the suppliers bank details so we have them on record for when we need to make a payment to them Cheers I'll add this to my submission too
  4. ☹️ No One seems to be able to solve this issue for us... I don't really want to upgrade to the full paid software if it wont do this.. It's a simple thing I would have thought.
  5. Hi all, hope someone can help. I'm using version 7.03. I create Invoices and use the Pay in Days detail with a factor of 21... ie: My Invoice to the Client is due for payment in 21 days. Is there a way to add the Due Date field to the "Invoices Screen" so that when I go to see which Invoices have not been paid, I can see that they are due/Overdue or not due. I have put that detail into the actual Invoice but when browsing back to the Invoices Screen I don't see that detail Currently the Fields available are Date: Invoice: Order: Customer: Salesperson: Amount: Due: Status. The "Due" here only reflects the actual amount due if the Invoice is not Paid. If Paid then there is no data in that Column on the corresponding line. Thanks in advance for any help.
  6. Hi Elk, I have done all those things as per your instructions and rechecked them multiple times but still can not get the program to email my Invoices. Do you know of any other settings that I should be checking? or changing?
  7. I am testing the software to see if it will suit my needs. So far I am mostly happy but I am not able to email any Invoices to customers from within the program. I am using Gmail as my email client and I get this error message. "mail host server error(MAIL FROM not accepted). Please check your email settings. dbpspilot@gmail.com - (550 - ) I have tried various fixes from the forums but nothing seems to work. My SMTP server is set as smtp.google.com and I have inserted my email address and password. Also ticked the SSL/TLS and send direct boxes. Any ideas would be appreciated. I do use Authentication on my google account but I am not getting any messages regarding unauthorised account activity. I have also disabled the authentication so that teh account is open for third party software use but I still can't email Invoices nor do I get any notification of unauthorised account activity.
