Email is not sent because of failed authentication

Email is not sent because of failed authentication:
authentication failure [SMTP: Invalid response code received from server (code: 535, response: 5.7.8 Error: authentication failed: another step is needed in authentication)]


This error is caused
by your SMTP server - it uses different type of authentication method.
