Has anyone managed to configure the outgoing mail to be via 'gmail'?
According to gmail's help pages, the settings (for Outlook Express)are:
1 Enter your full Gmail email address (email@example.com) in the 'Email address:' field, and click 'Next.'
2 Enter 'smtp.gmail.com' in the 'Outgoing mail (SMTP) server:' field.
3 Click 'Next.'
4 Enter your Gmail username (including '@gmail.com') in the 'POP3 Account name:' field. Enter your Gmail password in the 'Password:' field, and click 'Next.'
5 Click 'Finish.'
6 Highlight 'pop.gmail.com' under 'Account,' and click 'Properties.'
7 Click the 'Advanced' tab.
8 Check the box next to 'This server requires a secure connection (SSL)' under 'Outgoing Mail (SMTP).'
9 Enter '465' in the 'Outgoing mail (SMTP):' field.
10 re POP3......
11 Click the 'Servers' tab, and check the box next to 'My server requires authentication.'
12 Click 'OK.'
but I can't get a connection, but a 'SSL layer initialisation failed'. It works in Outlook Express okay.
