That smtp username's account is not allowed to send


While using frappe.sendmail(), got below error…

(550, b"that smtp username’s account is not allowed to send")}
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/email/”, line 425, in send_one

raise SMTPRecipientsRefused(senderrs)
smtplib.SMTPRecipientsRefused: {‘’: (550, b"that smtp username’s account is not allowed to send")}

We’re using smtp2go smtp service providers…

Attached screenshots of Email Domain and notification set up…

what’s wrong here?


Port 25 is not recommended - rather use port 587 with TLS

@trentmu, changed the port…still getting same error…

I am not sure why your settings aren’t working - maybe do what’s shown in this post…

This is kind of confusing. If you’re using smtp2go smtp service then why is your email address a gmail account? I presume every smtp service has a unique sender parameter which you must supply in order to connect to their smtp servers.

If on the other hand you are using a standard gmail account then you must observe gmail’s smtp configuration protocols and also, do not forget to enable access to less secure apps from your google account security page.

Thanks…but if we are using smtp2go smtp services then from where I should set unique sender parameter ?

I think this is the answer you’re looking for:

Sending via SMTP
SMTP server:
SMTP port: 2525 (or 80, 25, 8025 or 587 if that doesn’t work).
Username / Password: Turn on SMTP authentication and enter your account’s SMTP username and SMTP password.
Note: TLS/SSL is optional. TLS is available on the same ports. SSL is available on ports 465 and 8465.

the SMTP username and password should be available in your smtp2go account. I can’t actually pry further as the service is not available in my country so it won’t allow me sign up so i can see the “insides” of an account.
