I am getting the above error from the below script. And yes I have verified that I am using my correct credentials. All I want to do is send an email from a script! Has anyone run into this issue before?

import smtplib

FROMADDR = "my.real.address@gmail.com"
LOGIN = FROMADDR
PASSWORD = "my.real.password"
TOADDRS = ["my.real.address@gmail.com"]
SUBJECT = "Test"

msg = ("From: %s\r\nTo: %s\r\nSubject: %s\r\n\r\n"
% (FROMADDR, ", ".join(TOADDRS), SUBJECT) )
msg += "some text\r\n"

server = smtplib.SMTP('smtp.gmail.com', 587)
server.set_debuglevel(1)
server.ehlo()
server.starttls()
server.login(LOGIN, PASSWORD)
server.sendmail(FROMADDR, TOADDRS, msg)
server.quit()

Answer

The solution to this ended up being changing my gmail password. I never did figure out which special characters were throwing everything off, but I just generated a new password and had no problems with this after that.
