Unable to send emails using my Gmail account


Gmail uses less secure applications to send emails from TallyPrime.


To fix the problem of sending emails from TallyPrime through your Gmail account, you can follow the troubleshooting methods outlined below:

  1. Login to your Gmail account.
  2. Click Account from Google apps.
  3. Select Security under Google Account settings.
  4. Choose from the following options:
    • Method 1: Enable Less secure app access
      1. Turn off 2-Step Verification displayed under Signing in to Google.
      2. Turn on access for Less secure app access > turn on Allow less secure apps.
        Enabling Less secure apps access sometimes works when using for some email addresses, but it does not work for all Gmail addresses. When this is the case, it is recommended to use app-based passwords for specific applications, as explained in Method 2.
    • Method 2: Generate App passwords
      1. Turn on 2-Step Verification by completing the process of verifying the password and the verification code.
        Now you can find the App passwords option under Singing in to Google.
      2. Generate App passwords.
        1. Click App passwords > enter your password > click Next.
        2. Click Select app and choose Other (Custom name).
        3. Type TallyPrime in the space provided.
        4. Click GENERATE to create a password.
          You will see the app password for your device on the screen.
        5. Note down the password and click DONE.

After you enable Method 1 and try to send emails from the Virtual Computer, and if that fails, you can enable Method 2 to send emails. You can choose to continue using Method 2 or go back to Method 1 according to your convenience. 

Using these troubleshooting methods, you will now be able to send emails from TallyPrime through your Gmail account. Click here for more information on sending invoices and reports via email with an Outlook or Yahoo account.
