What Others Think

Hmm, seems not to work; I tried: curl -n --ssl-reqd --mail-from "username@googlemail.com" --mail-rcpt "username@freenet.de" --url smtps://smtp.gmail.com:465 -T opml.h -u 'username@gmail.com' what I get is: curl: (67) Access denied: 555 but password is right!!

btwotch, it's works
konkere · 634 weeks and 1 day ago
so what have I done wrong?
btwotch · 634 weeks and 1 day ago
Hey btwotch, I had the same problem as you. I searched google for error 555. I found out that you need to keep this syntax: "", yours is wrong as "user@gmail.com". Working now!
Force4 · 634 weeks and 1 day ago
now I've found why it didn't work; you have to use: --mail-from "" --mail-rcpt ""
btwotch · 634 weeks ago
argh, you have to use &lqt; ... ;)

on OSX the latest curl is 7.19.7. curl: option --ssl-reqd: is unknown Would be interested if anyone gets this working on Snow Leopard.

@SuperFly and others: it works as explained. BUT if you have authentication problems it could be due to Google asking for a CAPTCHA. You can unlock your account typing the captcha by hand at https://www.google.com/accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha Then, try again with the curl command. Hope it helps!

@entertainyou: the file.txt should be sth like that: "From: To: Subject: Testmail Date: Thu, 26 Oct 2006 13:10:50 +0200 Texttexttext . " @sentinel: compile curl ;) @SuperFly: that's not possible because of the &lqt;

Sorry! I mean this one: url -u username:password -n --ssl-reqd --mail-from "" --mail-rcpt "" --url smtps://smtp.gmail.com:465 -T file.txt

This is really neat! I never knew that curl was capable of doing this. I was just wondering something. Is it at all possible to attach a picture file to the email? Thx.
