So I just spent a couple of hours trying to get some A-B PLCs to send emails, in the final result was for most users it will no longer work because they do not support TLS.
I tried the workarounds for both Office 365 and Gmail that folks previously used for old devices like Printers that didn't support TLS, but sadly it seems these old workarounds also no longer work.
It would have been cool if Rockwell could have released firmware updated for these products, but emailing from PLCs must no longer be of high demand and it's probably just better to try to use the functionality of HMI's to do it since they can be more easily updated!
That said, have a great Monday all!
