SMTP Setup using Gmail


Hi friends,

I am trying to setup sending Email alerts through my SAS System and trying to setup the SMTP server using the GMAIL. I already tried out many things but nothing is working out for me. There is a usage note from SAS 53215 - How to set up your SAS® installation to use Secure SMTP via Gmail .I tried that but the setting doesnt worked for me. If I set

-emailhost (“smtp.gmail.com” STARTTLS id=gmail-login-ID pw=gmail-password auth=LOGIN port=587); my Metadata server doesn't start at all. Any one tried it actually and successful in sending emails?

Regards,

What does the Metadata server log say? And do you get an error message when you try to start the metadata server from the commandline?

Hi Kurt,

  

Metadata log doesn’t say anything on this issue. Just fails to
start. My system is Windows. So when I start the service, it fails. It happens
when I have anything other than SMTP host in –emailhost. My setting under
MetadataServer/sasv9.cfg:

  

With SSL:

  -emailsys smtp

  -emailhost "smtp.gmail.com"

  -emailport 465

  -emailauthprotocol login

  -emailid "xxxxxxxxx"

  -emailpw "xxxxxxxxx"

I even tried with MAPI like below:

-emailsys mapi

-emaildlg native

-emailhost "smtp.gmail.com"

-emailport 587

-noemailfrom

-emailauthprotocol login

-emailid "xxxxxxxxx"

-emailpw "xxxxxxxxx"

Email error 2.png

Hmm.

When googling for "error 530 5.7.1 client was not authenticated" I get a lot of pages which make me suggest that you do not have a problem with gmail, but with the settings of Microsoft Exchange. Since I run my SAS on AIX and use the AIX sendmail as MTA, I won't be able to help you much with this.
