Probably need to "Allow Less Secure Apps":

It's not "less" secure really - you're still using SSL. Just Google making us jump through security hoops.

I also did the installation process for the OpenSSL files but still no luck. Even if there is another working method for sending an email ill try setting that method up to. Any suggestions really. It does not necessarily have to be gmail I can open sevral email provider accounts such as outlook, yahoo etc

hi,
your sample code worked for me, also with gmail account,

I think its possible that you mixed up the
Let>SMTP_USERID=[email protected]
and
Let>me=[email protected]

For SMTP_USERID you MUST use your own gmail account
so change to
SMTP_USERID=[email protected]

and let me= the same [email protected] or a email adress you allowed to send through your gmail account.

kind regards,
Djek
