    Question Google preventing use of ssmtp on 12.10 server

    I've set up ssmtp on a 12.10 AWS server.

    When I try to use it I get:
    Code:
    [<-] 220 mx.google.com ESMTP ni8sm27348605pbc.70
    [->] EHLO footholdgame.com
    [<-] 250 ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
    [->] STARTTLS
    [<-] 220 2.0.0 Ready to start TLS
    [->] EHLO footholdgame.com
    [<-] 250 ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
    [->] AUTH LOGIN
    [<-] 334 VXNlcm5hbWU6
    [->] cGF1bC53aGlwcEBnbWFpbC5jb20=
    [<-] 334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6
    [<-] 535 5.7.1 https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?answer=78754 ni8sm27348605pbc.70
    ssmtp: Authorization failed (535 5.7.1 https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?answer=78754 ni8sm27348605pbc.70)
    Following this thread, I found a message from google stating "suspicious sign in prevented".

    Google's work around is that I should log in using a web browser. Unfortunately it's a server that has no GUI and I don't particularly want to clutter it up trying to add one just in order to get google to accept the emails.

    Does anyone know how I can convince google that my sign on from this particular IP is legitimate without having to use a web browser on that IP?

    Answering my own question from ongoing research:

    https://accounts.google.com/DisplayUnlockCaptcha

    allowed me to open access and get the server enabled.
