Basically, google detected that i changed my password but not from where i actually live but from the same place where it detected that it tried to log in. I dont know if im being clear

    I made one before watching this, so I guess I'm good for something. Still, my backwards primitive self still uses yahoo email, and they turned off the ability to allow app access. >:(

    Can encoding be changed to UTF-8? Also, I followed along with video but my email could not be delivered to gmail because of RFC 5322 compliance issues (namely header format.) I believe that the email lib can help resolve this issue. Anybody else run into this problem and/or find a solution?

    Let's say if I want to sent auto generated mail to the user who login to my website, then it is not possible to hardcode the password and storethat file online. Then how to do it ?

    Hey man, the smptplib import is not working for me (probably because I am in school) it would be great if I could hit you up or if you could make a video on how to send an email based on certain values taken from a .csv file when the values drop below a certain number. Thanks 🙂

    (December 27, 2018 - 4:34 am)

    I don't really know how to fix this :
    I've done everything there, here's my code :

    import smtplib
    content = "Herro"
    mail = smtplib.SMTP ("smtp.gmail.com",587)
    mail.ehlo()
    mail.starttls()
    mail.login("usr" , "pss")
    mail.sendmail ("usr", "usr" , content)
    mail.close()

    but when I run it, it sends the email, but it has no text at all… please help!
    I'm trying to make a chatroom which uses emails…
