Post subject:  Trouble setting a Gmail account

Hi,

I've had a Freehostia Lovebeat account for many years, I have several email account forwarding mails to my single Gmail account.
Some of these Freehostia hosted accounts, Gmail sends emails.

However, Gmail have recently changed their policy regarding "Add another email address that you own" to your Google account.
Now, instead of them send you an email to confirm that you own the email account, they require you input your:

Name
Email Address
SMTP Server
Port
Username
Password

Also the options of TLS or SSL

However, I don't seem to be able to get this to work?
I used my:
name
email
mbox.freehostia.com (port 587) - Google only give the option of 25, 465 or 587
email address (as username)
email password

However, I only get told by Google that "Couldn't reach server. Please double-check the server and port number."

Can anyone help please, this is most annoying as I really want to use Google to send emails from.

Many Thanks,

Andrew

Hello Andrew,

Please set the SMTP port for the mailbox to be 25, so that google can connect to the mail server .

If there are still issues please open a support ticket from the Control Panel with the details provided.
