cakeemail on remote server

Hi,

I am having problems with cakephp email.
I have this weird problem where my below email code works fine on my local server but not on the remote server.

The error I get is
SMTP Error: 534 5.7.14 https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?answer=78754 u5sm29708221pdh.54 - gsmtp

which doesnt make any sense to me because my email does work from my local server, the google account has low security enabled already.

my email.php

  public $gmail2 = array(
    'host' => 'ssl://smtp.gmail.com',
     'port' => 465,
     'username' => 'xxxxx@gmail.com',
       'password' => 'xxxxxx',
    'transport' => 'Smtp',
 
);

in controller


 
 $Email = new CakeEmail();
                             $Email->config('gmail2');
                            // $to=$item['Tutor']['email'];
                             $to='xxxxxxx';
                             $Email->from( array('xxxxxx' => 'Aptutoring'));
                             $Email->to($to);
                             $Email->subject('Hello');
                             $Email->send($message);   //$message set elsewhere

That is a reply from the google's mail servers stating that the username or password is incorrect: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/78754

As it says in the article, it could also be the need for an App password: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833

When you sign in from multiple locations and multiple times quickly as you may have been while testing on your production server, there's every chance that Google has blocked your server.

I agree with your reply as I knew this already but how do I fix it?
An app password is for a phone and I am using PC's so why would this cause an issue and my password/login is correct.


Where to from here?
