Updated Flask-Mail Example?

Updated Flask-Mail Example?

Hello,

I'm trying to get flask-mail running and i've modified the Snippet to have
my correct google credentials and just can't get it to work. I've also
tried a third party SMTP (smtpgogo.com) and no luck there either.

http://flask.pocoo.org/snippets/85/

I made the necessary update on the import to flask_mail from flaskext.mail
as well.

I tried SSL/TLS On, Off, Both On, Both Off, etc etc. On one or two
instances I got a notification from google to sign in for security but once
I "allowed" this sign in it didn't bother me anymore. The problem is, mail
just never shows up. I get no errors and my return "Mail Sent! is displayed
properly.

Does anyone have a working, tested, snippet for the current version of
Flask_Mail with google mail as a SMTP provider that I can try out to see if
there is something else at hand? For hosting I'm using PythonAnywhere.com

Did you already try setting MAIL_FAIL_SILENTLY=False? The default of 
True is kind of unfortunate as it can make the initial set up a little 
annoying.

I haven't, I'll give that a shot! It wasn't in the original documentation I
started with so I completely glossed over it when I found the latest docs.
I'll report back!
