Is there anyway to use the GMail SMTP service for the “SMTP Server Settings” in the “Configuration/System Settings”?
I tried the following without success.
User: Me@MyDomain.com (my gmail account)
PW: ********** (my gmail password)
Enable SSL: Yes
I get the following error message:
“SMTP Error: General failure
The transaction could not occur. You receive this error when the specified SMTP host cannot be found.”
Any assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated on this.
An overview of the settings can be found here:
However i would not recommend using gmail as your panel mail server, in the mail templates the “from ” address will need to be defined properly, however Resellers can overwrite host settings to personalize their emails to their users, but they will still use your gmail smtp. (which will most likely bounce).
