    That's good to know. We don't sell Sharp, but this method may become the norm and hopefully can be implemented on other devices via firmware.

    it's actually easy to do, it works well, but if you change the gmail password, it deletes the app password. technically you can only use the app password for 1 device, however on the KM, if you use the USB to swap over the settings from 1 device to another, the app password will move with it and work

    less secure apps stopped working a while ago, we had all of our customers, who use gmail, fail within a week of each other - luckily we were prepared and sent them instructions on setting up an app password

    No, the only thing that quit working was the "less secure" option. And then they added 2 factor.

    Yepp. App password is just a way to say - hey Google this device passes 2FA it can work.

    Re: creating new Gmail accounts for scan to E-Mail

    I've done the set up of free gmail accounts for years. However two or more years ago, with all the challenges that Gmail has put me through, and due to legal reasons we no longer will be creating/supporting those accounts. The legal reason: we could be held responsible if any of the clients information was leaked (and let's be honest Google would sell your mother if it could). Because you/I created it and could possibly get access to said email. Now we have turned all that information over to the clients making them whole responsible. Including 2FA and app passwords. I will assist in creating new app passwords if needed, but otherwise its hands off. I've gone back to scanning to Desktop, HDD, NAS, etc. this has its own issues but at least its local and the client owns the devices.


    Side note: Information Security is becoming more and more critical. Keeping your customers as secure as you can will keep your business/company safer in the long run.

    Emails sent through it also a number of times in the past has been blocked by a number of other email providers due to its use by bulk mailers. You could end up being liable if one of your customers loses a contract because their bid got blocked.

    Use the clients email account or have them create one for a machine

    We NEVER create client email accounts for equipment

    Any failure is now on the client and is billable hours
