    SMTP settings for use with Gmail

    Hi guys,

    Just setting up a 6.1.6 Umbraco site and use Gmail for our domain emails.  I am trying to set up the SMTP config  and have used the code below but keep obatining a 500 error (obviously have changed the xxx for our own settings).  Any idea where I'm going wrong guys?  cheers :)

    <network host="" port="587" enableSsl="true" defaultCredentials="false" userName="[email protected]" password="xxx" />

    I'm using Google Apps for business for our email and the settings you have Brian worked for me. Thank you for sharing.

    <networkhost=""port="587"enableSsl="true"defaultCredentials="false"userName="[email protected]"password="xxx"/>

    Your answer works fine but if you forget to remove the spaces between network and host the application crashes. Had to learn it the hard way ;)

    Hi all, I wanted to send email when my visitors submit form through my website. I use the Umbraco form, wonder is it doable using gmail as SMTP?
