    Alternate to ssmtp to send emails

    I used to use ssmtp to send emails to my yahoo email address.

    However, both Yahoo and Gmail removed the ability to be able to ALLOW LESS SECURE APPS TO ACCESS EMAIL which stopped ssmtp from working. (ssmtp: Authorization failed (535 5.7.0 (#AUTH005) Too many bad auth attempts.)

    Is there any other way to accomplish my task?

    Surely there is a way other than having to use a web browser.

    Use a full-fledged mail exchanger like Postfix or sendmail.
