Two-factor Authentication


If you are getting an error message that indicates that you must create an application-specific password, you have Two-factor Authentication turned on. If you are not sure, or can’t remember if you have two-factor Authentication enabled, the first thing to do is check your email account’s security settings.


This is when you have two-factor authentication set up in the security settings of your mail provider (this can apply to any of the major mail providers).

To fix:

You will need to go into your security settings and generate an app-specific password for SoftRAID, and then use that app specific password in the email notification settings.
