About 5 days ago I suddenly started getting an error when trying to send "Shipping Notifications".

Error read:   "The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. Server response was 5.5.1 authentication required  . . . . . ."
I had not upgraded SixBit in about 6 months but subsequently upgraded to version 3.00.208 and had same issue.  Nothing at all changed on my computer running Windows 7.  Never had this problem before and have been running SixBit for several years.
Any suggestions on what may have suddenly changed and how to fix?

HI Sally,


I would check with your email provider to see if they changed settings. You should be able to enter them in Sixbit and have the notifications work again. If you need further help, open a support ticket in the program and our staff will be able to help get it working.

Thanks for steering me in the right direction.  


I got an email to reset my google password due to a suspected hack on my account and didn't realize that password was in SixBit.  Your response made me look and I had not tied the 2 together.  All fixed and working now!


Many thanks
