HP Office Jet Pro 9018
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I have a brandnew HP Office Jet Pro 9018

I am trying to setup the scan to email function using my gmail account.

SMTP server >

smtp username name > gmail address

smtp password > gmail passowrd

SMTP > 25

Always use secure connection TLS/SSL > UNTICKED

Validate server certificate > UNTICKED


Gmail account >  Less secure app access > TURNED ON


When I save these settings and test I get an error message, even though I have set the "validate security certificate to off. If I switch the validate security to "on" I get the same message.


Can anyone advise me how to resolve this so I can use the scan to email functionScreenshot 2020-05-08 at 20.27.25.png?
