How to send mail using gmail

Problem: How to send mail using gmail.


Often it is tedious to setup and maintain a mail server. If you have a gmail accout, you can use gmail as SMTP server to send mail. To do that we need to specify username and password of gmail account in web.config.

web.config.smtp_server = ''
web.config.smtp_port = 587
web.config.smtp_username = ''
web.config.smtp_password = 'secret'
web.config.smtp_starttls = True

Once this configuration is set, web.sendmail can be used to send mail using the gmail account. Gmail signs all these mails.

web.sendmail('', '', 'subject', 'message')
