Gmail has recently disabled AUTHENTICATE PLAIN support by default (while still advertising support on login), which can result in the error "An error occurred in the protocol" with error code 11101, when attempting to log into your Gmail account (this will also generate an email sent to your Gmail account). This is accompanied by text in the log: 'No [WEBALERT *a long accounts.google.com address*] Web login required.'.

To resolve this, navigate to your Google account's 'Connected Apps and Sites': https://myaccount.google.com/security#connectedapps and near the bottom of the page, enable the switch 'Allow less secure apps'.

I have changed the setting in the google account

Account-> Connected Apps and sites -> Allow less secure Apps ( switch to ON)

but still getting the same error.

Is there any thing to update to send mail through Gmail.
