Hi Guys,

I have one Ansible Playbook to send mail to some users. But whenever I try to run the playbook, it is showing me the below error.

fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "msg": "Authentication to smtp.gmail.com:587 failed, please check your username and/or password", "rc": 1}

How can I solve this error?

There may be some reasons to get this kind of error. The first thing that the username and password are incorrect. So check this part once. If it is correct and still you are getting the same error, then in your google account you need to enable the less secure app. By default it is disabled.
