Gmail setup - 504 5.3.3 AUTH mechanism PLAIN not available

Added by Vishal Mehta over 9 years ago

I followed the steps as mentioned in the link http://afterthoughtsoftware.com/posts/How-to-setup-Redmine-email

After that, I edited the environment.rb to set action mailer to true which was previously false.

However, Unlike mentioned in the above link that I would get an error: "530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first", I instead got "An error occurred while sending mail (504 5.3.3 AUTH mechanism PLAIN not available )"

Also, I haven't been able to fetch the action_mailer plugin from the github for reasons unknown! After running the .script/plugin, it says, ' Plugin not found: ["git://github.com/merbjedi/app_config.git"] '

This seems to be a known problem as per http://rustammamedov.wordpress.com/2010/01/03/problem-with-scriptplugin-install-git-in-rails-2-3-4-and-ruby-1-9/ But, on typing $ ruby -v, it gives the version as 1.8.7 instead of 1.9 so that doesn't seem to be the issue here?

Either way, the link above gives a fix which can be done by applying the patch but I am a bit less aware on the process to apply such a patch

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with Redmine 1.3.2 installed

Any help on this will be much appreciated
