Sending SMPT emails from Gmail

I don't seem able to send emails via SMPT through gmail. I have set up POP3 and that works fine for receiving emails from the server. But I want to use Gmail to send emails from my GoDaddy email address.

I have tried going into SYNC email settings in Outlook and using:

 

Server name: smtp.office365.com
Port: 587
Encryption method: STARTTLS

 

But it doesn't work. I get this error:

 

Authentication failed. Please check your username/password.
Server returned an error: "334 VXNlcm5hbWU6 334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6 535 5.7.3 Authentication unsuccessful [AM3PR04CA0145.eurprd04.prod.outlook.com] , code: 535"

 

Can anyone help?

This is a known issue between Google & Microsoft - Below is a reply I posted just last week to someone with this same question - 

 

I am an end user like you - Based on the post from the Microsoft board - this is an issue between Microsoft and Google - and not one that GoDaddy can specifically do anything about.

 

I believe that the reason the previous threads have been marked resolved is because there is no further solution.

 

I know that many providers are going to web based authentication - this is where to add an account to an email client / device, you have to login via a web browser and your device / application gets a token to log in. This is being done to help prevent spam / hijacking of accounts.

 

From a tech perspective, I would not recommend / advise someone using Office 365 to try to send via a 3rd party system (even via SMTP) - Office has a number of things built into it (tracking / recall email / events) that are part of the Exchange server functionality that when using SMTP get bypassed / not available.

 

I know this may not be the answer you want, but I believe it is the only answer at this time.

Many thanks for your help with this. That makes it really clear.

Unfortunately, as of today, I can't even check POP3 from my GoDaddy domain name email on gmail! No idea what's going on! In gmail it says: "Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password."

but user and pass is accurate.

mysterious!
