SMTP Settings for OnPrem

Hi
Has anyone used AWS SES (simple email service) account for the SMTP on Buddy On Premise? I cannot seem to get it working. Where can I see the logs on the underlying linux system? Perhaps some additional settings we can configure from the cli as well?

Also, gmail accounts no longer work the why they are described in the help docs. Google no longer allows ‘less secure app access’ for authentcation. Is there a workaround for it?
