I used to be able to do this - I try again every so often and give up.. I have turned on access for less secure apps/told google its me - and it seems happy.
Tried several settings - this email is actual a googlemail and by changing the SMTP server to googlemail rather than gmail I can now get the test connection working -

But when I try and send the emails I get this error message for each email and it doesn't send

<class 'smtplib.smtpserverdisconnected'="">: please run connect() first, traceback follows File "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\mailmerge.py", line 288, in sendMailMessage self.server.sendmail(sendermail, truerecipients, msg.as_string()) File "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\python-core-3.5.7\lib\smtplib.py", line 848, in sendmail self.ehlo_or_helo_if_needed() File "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\python-core-3.5.7\lib\smtplib.py", line 600, in ehlo_or_helo_if_needed if not (200 <= self.ehlo()[0] <= 299): File "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\python-core-3.5.7\lib\smtplib.py", line 440, in ehlo self.putcmd(self.ehlo_msg, name or self.local_hostname) File "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\python-core-3.5.7\lib\smtplib.py", line 367, in putcmd self.send(str) File "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\python-core-3.5.7\lib\smtplib.py", line 359, in send raise SMTPServerDisconnected('please run connect() first')

I've read the similar question (https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questi...) and don't really understand - where/how to change the code? Do I still need to?

About to revert to sending individual emails with pdf attachments ... which I find really frustrating cos I know how much quicker/easier it was when it worked.
