Gmail Error: Password not accepted from server

Found a good solution today if you’re receiving the following error:

SMTP -> ERROR:Password not accepted from server. Code: 535 Reply: 535-5.7.1 Please log in with your web browser and then try again.

Even if the Gmail account credentials are correct, Google’s servers may still block the server attempting to authenticate (more than likely due to a new server location and/or recent password change).

This will allow access to your Gmail account for about 10 minutes so that a new authenticating server can be detected. Be sure to try authenticating again within this time period.
