OJS email configuration with Google WorkSpace (Gsuit)

I trying to configure OJS email with GSuit, I followed these instructions but nothing worked for me, I still get the error:

There was a problem sending an email message. Please try again later, or contact your system administrator.

Are there any solution for that?

Hi @Ali_Jalil,

Please note that version of OJS that you’re using is no longer supported by PKP. I recommend that you upgrade to the newest version of OJS. However, other community members may wish to offer assistance.

Upgrading instructions are available in the PKP Administrator’s Guide.

Information about the latest version of OJS can be found on the PKP Website

You may also wish to check out the solution offered here: Config.inc.php for gmail OJS 3.0.0-8

Roger, Thanks for your reply, I already tried to use last version but the PHP V8 is required which I can not set it on my server.
Is there any further recommendations to do to resolve this issue.


Hi @Ali_Jalil,

Sorry - I don’t have any further recommendations to offer, so others may have to provide some. As noted, I do recommend that you upgrade sooner than later. You can try searching here on the forum for some posts that relate (but you may have already done that).

PKP Team

Thank you.
