While running the email sender node, I am getting the error as "java.lang. NullPointerException". Image description

This occurs due to multiple reasons-
  1. When you do not provide the Outgoing protocol and Outgoing server in the Configurations for Email Sender node. Click here to know more about how to specify the Configuration.
  2. When attachment-fileID parameter is not mapped correctly. Attachment-fileID parameter of Email Sender node accepts fileID and not the path of the file.
    Ensure Upload to JIFFY server function is used to upload the attachment file to the JIFFY server that returns the fileID. This fileID needs to be then mapped to attachment-fileID parameter of email sender node.

Gmail has discontinued permissions for Less Secure Apps, except for Google Workspace and Google Cloud Identity. As Google Workspace support is disabled, Email-related features such as, Email, Browser, Send e-mail, etc. are stopped working.

The option for allowing less secure apps feature is not applicable for individual email accounts anymore. This applies for regular Google accounts as of May 30, 2022.
Therefore, you must either create app passwords for these accounts or move to a GSuite account.
