Hey, sorry if this is a very basic question, and the answer is obvious. I’m very new to HA.
So I am trying to set up some automations to notify me via email. I’ve added this to configuration.yaml
notify: platform: smtp name: email server: smtp.gmail.com port: 587 timeout: 15 encryption: starttls sender: [email protected] username: [email protected] password: password recipient: - [email protected] - [email protected] sender_name: Home Assistant
I have tried with 2-factor authorization off, as well as on with the app password.
I have selected to allow less-secure apps.
I tried using gmail and yahoo
I’ve rebooted the server a thousand times.
for some reason the service “notify.email” is never created.
I’m sure I’m missing something stupid, but I’ve been throwing human suffering at this problem for about 4 hours, I’ve read through everything even vaguely connected in the forums, and I just can not figure this out.
