email settings gmail

Postby sigrossman » Sun Jun 25, 2017 10:39 pm

I have given up using my personal email (based on my domain) and tried gmail. I get an error message "An error has occurred while attempting to send a test email. The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure".

Here are GMAIL smtp setting instructions.
Gmail SMTP server address: smtp.gmail.com.
Gmail SMTP username: Your full Gmail address (e.g. yourusername@gmail.com)
Gmail SMTP password: Your Gmail password.
Gmail SMTP port (TLS): 587.
Gmail SMTP port (SSL): 465.
Gmail SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes.

I tried both port settings.

I would expect that the software should not have a problem with GMAIL since it's so widely used. Very dissappointing

Hi sigrossman, VueMinder can send email through Google Mail. The SMTP server needs to be smtp.gmail.com, port 465 (not 587), and Use SSL should be checked.

Also, you might need to enable access from “less secure apps” before VueMinder can send email through your Google Mail account. You can enable access on the page linked below:
https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps

If you still get an error, it’s very likely that your firewall or antivirus software is interfering with VueMinder’s ability to send email. Try adding an exception for VueMinder to see if that fixes it.
