Gmail as SMTP

SpongeBobSpongeBob New
edited August 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

My server do not have SMTP server. I wish to use gmail.
I set to use remote server
port 465

I get no error and no emails
I checked apache error.log and there is no errors either.

I read the forum and it seems other people are getting some errors or post relate to older version that had no SSL support.

Please, advice

    I've used gmail in the past and they've worked fine. Maybe gmail is cracking down on this?

    Is there way to debug it?

    • Send test email
    • Get some log notice that, forum will send email,
    • etc

    Thank You

    I ran on server, set localhost 10025 no ssl in vanilla and sent private message. Nothing happened. Registered user. Nothing emailed again. I just setup forum. It has default settings.

    ./ --host=localhost --port=10025 --path=.
    Listening on port 10025
