If you are using a Gmail account, you will not be able to send emails from the Z Programs without further intervention.

What does this mean if I'm using Gmail to send emails from Z?
If you are using Gmail to send emails from the Z Programs (e.g. sending account/debtor statements, electronic tokens or receipts etc), you most likely have a Google setting (Allow Less Secure Apps) enabled.
From May 30th 2022, Google will be disabling this setting and you will not be able to send emails from the Z Programs without further intervention.
What do I need to do?
You can implement these changes now to ensure that you can continue to send emails after May 30th 2022.
