Up until recently I had a CCTV system sending email through gmail happily on port 465 SSL. The CCTV does not have TLS capability. My camera no longer send reports /pics etc. Is there any work around for this or another free service? thanks

Does your CCTV system have local network access? Is there an always-up Windows machine on that network? If so you can install SMTP relay and simply use that. It's fast and easy to setup. I use SMTP relay services all the time when I need to have things send email notifications but have no need to reply.

I completely get why Gmail isn't supporting SSL any longer. It's a security risk.

No server just a basic nas type controller for the camera. No ability to install locally

Log in to your gmail account in a web browser.
Go to the following link: http://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps
Turn on Access for less secure apps.

Sid_F, the link you gave appears to be broken.
I am using gmail with SSL on 465 and it still works perfectly.
I think the problem is something else.

The protocol is HTTP in the above link and isn't correct. Use HTTPS to get a server connection.

I think its specifically SSL V3 that no longer works. Lots of issues for camera users. I guess this post is a last attempt to get a work around for camera alerts : )

Unfortunately there are no firmware updates for my camera as its considered a grey import.

Did you try the two-step verification method instead of the firmware update, which I assume never came out? If that didn't work, you're shot in the foot with Gmail. Other email providers aren't going to want to be in an insecure position either. Your only other real option is to replace your NVR.

The truth is painful sometimes : ) I think you are right no option but to replace.
