Re: Email alerts no longer sending

I suspect what is happening here is Gmail is tired of all this security camera traffic. I have five IP2M-841B cameras mounted outside, and on windy days, or foggy conditions, they will send a ton of false motion alerts with snap shots.

To be sure, follow all of these steps exactly. Fir...

Re: Email alerts no longer sending

Having the same problem. All 5 of my Amcrest cams stopped sending email alerts on the 7th of Feb. 2019. I've tried using alternative free email accounts like mail.com and outlook.com, and got a few alerts through, then they stopped working as well.
