Email issues
Milkboy31, 2012-06-29 04:17:18
Hey Andreas,

I can't get gmail to work via email here... Can you see if you are able to run a test message via a Gmail account?

I'm using the following settings (which I use for POP3/SMTP in Outlook for my account just fine).

Sender Address: Username@gmail.com
Server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 465
Username: GmailUsername
Password: GmailPassword
Use SSL: Checked

I click Send test-email and the program stops responding. I click to close it and I get the windows 7 pop-up to try to recover the program... I do that, and I get the following error pop-up: http://i45.tinypic.com/2drvqc6.png

Further, it seems as though it isn't respecting the "When no longer available after check count" value as I have it set at 5 and it sends emails immediately upon failing the first check. This happens regardless of what email system I use.

Hello Brent,

first thanks for your message!

Sending the test message works fine with my Google Mail account when using the settings as shown in the Check Host help system:
Server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 587
Username: [your Google Mail e-mail address]
Password: [your Google Mail password]
Use SSL: Checked

Please try again with these settings.

Regarding the other mentioned problem:
there was a bug fix regarding that not so long ago. Please check if you're using the most recent version (1.1.8) and if not, please update to this version first.

Best regards

Perfect. Using that port works great for gmail and the new version does indeed fix the timeout issue on my one machine. I thought the other was already up to date, but I'll double check.
