Smtp not sending and no log of event gmail

I am having issues getting smpt setup with gmail.

Here are my settings in grafana.ini:
enabled = true
host =
user =

If the password contains# or ; you have to wrap it with trippel quotes. Ex “”"#password;"""

password = mypassword
;cert_file =
;key_file =
skip_verify = true
from_address = myemail@gmailCOM
from_name = Grafana

EHLO identity in SMTP dialog (defaults to instance_name)

;ehlo_identity = dashboard.exampleCOM

I have restarted the server, and stop started it a number of times, then revoked/resent the invite and checked email account.

With these settings I invite a user and no email is sent, and nothing is logged in /var/log/grafana/grafana.log
Interestingly, if I remove the :465 port it is logged with the expected error: “Async sent email 0 succeed, not send emails: example@exampleCOM err: address smtp.gmailCOM: missing port in address”. I would expect a log output for success or failure, correct? Any ideas?

Note I have replaced a few dot com with COM, new users can only have two links in their posts.

Kindly share the error message which you are getting in Grafana
