Failed to authenticate on SMTP server with username "[email protected]" using 2 possible authenticators

Posted 1 year ago by almost_pitt

Hey guys,

I have an application that sends out emails. Everything was working fine until I connected this email address to my Gmail account in order to have easier access to it and to be able to reply to users.

Now I'm getting an error on the site:

(1/1) Swift_TransportException

Failed to authenticate on SMTP server with username "[email protected]" using 2 possible authenticators.

I have tried the following to fix this problem:

  • I have checked all of the mail settings and they are all correct.
MAIL_DRIVER=smtp
MAIL_HOST=mydoma.in
MAIL_PORT=465
[email protected]
MAIL_PASSWORD=mysupersecretpassword
MAIL_ENCRYPTION=ssl
  • I have SSHed in and tried clearing the cache:
php artisan config:cache
php artisan config:clear

Any idea what else it could be?

Thanks guys!
