Email notifications with Gmail

Post by OdedErell » 26 Aug 2017, 21:21

Hi all,
I'm trying to get RenderPal Server to send me email notifications via the Gmail SMTP server and can't get it to work.
I'm testing this with the Windows firewall turned off to be sure it's not being the reason for failure.
I enabled IMAP in my Gmail account,
And also enabled 'less secure apps' in my Google account security settings.
These are the settings I tried in the RenderPal email notifications setup:
SMTP server:
Tried both
587 with SSL, and 465 with TLS
Perform SMTP authentication is turned on and I'm using my Gmail Account name and password.
For the sender I use my Gmail email address,
And for the recipient I use the mail address to which I want the notifications to be sent.
When I tried to test it using port 587 and SSL it immedatly failed,
When I tried using port 465 and TLS it takes a few seconds and gives a message:
Unable to connect to the server: the server closed the connection
Any Ideas what's missing? or wrong with my settings?
Thanks for any reply!

As far as I know, RenderPal does not support Gmail. Not sure with the latest version though. You have to setup your own smtp server.
