Email transport configuration

Is there a secret sauce to setting up Email transport to send to my gmail account? I have it setup similar to the following post:

The only difference being i am using my personal gmail account. Does it require a g-suite account? Also I have 2FA on my gmail account so I am using one of the App Passwords that I created specifically for LibreNMS from

./validate.php shows all is well (except for php timezone)

I wonder if I am just missing an obvious configuration option somewhere.
Thank you all for your time.

I have setup Gmail using personal account but I wasn’t using 2FA.
2FA maybe throwing it off…
And no you don’t need a g-suit account

here is how personal one looks.

time fix is important and should not be ignored.

Thanks, Kevin. I’ll give it another go tonight.

OK, just an update on configuring Email Transport with Gmail and 2FA.

I managed to get this working by going to Then go to Sign-in and Security and click on App Passwords.

At the bottom you can create new app passwords.

Select App -> Mail
Select Device -> I chose Windows Computer (You can probably choose “Other (Custom Name)” but since I got it working with this settings, I just put my hands up and moved away from the keyboard)
Then click Generate and use the resulting password in your email transport settings in LibreNMS.

Thanks for your help
