Since I installed this MR, I can't send a report via email. I sent a report via email from an instance of PC+ that didn't have the newest MR and it worked fine. Then I installed the newest MR and it won't send. It has a dialog box called Authorization Request. I have never seen this before.

This is a new requirement to send email via Gmail/G Suite accounts. You have to authorize third party apps like PowerChurch to be able to send email via that email account. Google is ending the ability to allow "less secure apps" to access the email account starting in June, so we're just a little ahead of the curve.

But even though I give the authorization, nothing gets sent.

That's the same problem I'm having. I give authorization, but it won't send.

If you're getting the authorization screen, but the program doesn't connect to Google, check to make sure your firewall is not blocking the program from connecting to Google. its a possibility since this is not a normal connection.

Well, my firewall is completely turned off and Google shows it is allowing access to PowerChurch.

This isn't a showstopper since individual reports can be saved as pdf's and then sent via regular email. But it would be best if it worked properly.

Bill,

I'm assuming you have the April 16th MR installed now too?

Neil,
Yep, MR 4/16 is installed. That's when the trouble began.

I'd call Powerchurch directly, as there's something going on that may not be fixable without someone looking real-time.
