Additional configuration for Gmail and Yahoo

If you are using a Gmail account to automate an email-related task, ensure that the option to allow access for less secured apps is enabled and IMAP must be enabled to access Gmail from other clients using IMAP . This is required to enable a TaskBot to send email using a Gmail account.

To enable access for less secure apps:

  1. Log in to your Gmail or Yahoo account.
  2. Go to account settings.
  3. Enable the option to allow less secure apps.

If you are using a Yahoo account to automate an email-related task, ensure that you generate the app password from the Yahoo account security page. Use the app password and the email address to log in to your email account.
