I have seen quite afew articles on the above but none for version 7. Does anybody know what the correct settings should be for routing email through gmail? For info I have a business account so the email address is a personal address rather than a gmail one.
Here is my code:
<smtp from=“email@example.com”><network host="smtp.gmail.com"userName=“firstname.lastname@example.org"password=“pwdhere” port="465" defaultCredentials="false" enableSsl="true" /></smtp>
Are you experiencing any issues with the above setup? At a first glance looks right to me - But I'm thinking that you perhaps need to setup the from email in the /config/umbracoSettings.config
Thanks for confirming so quickly.
In my umbraco settings I have the following:
<notifications><!-- the email that should be used as from mail when umbraco sends a notification --><email>email@example.com</email></notifications>
The reason we need it is because we have a team of contributors around the country and they are writing article remotely with one central administrator publishing the articles. When I tested just now with a test 'send to publish' I didn't receive an email to confirm something had been written.
Have I missed something daft?
Try checking the /App_Data/Logs file to see if it reveals any related info. Usually it appears in there if something is not working when trying to send e-mails.
And if you're not using it already you should try to use http://smtp4dev.codeplex.com/ - It can make it easier to do e-mail testing when sending.
Thanks again Jan.
Couldn't see anything of use in the logs, I have an ongoing issue with this site and memory leaks as well so I'm wondering if my hosting company have got a couple of settings wrong on the server..
P.S. will mark as a solution for other forum members to say that the Gmail settings for ver 7 were correct but will note that my emails are still not working at this point in time.
Ok, the issue could perhaps also be that the mails are ending up in a cue somewhere then so it's a good idea to get in touch with the hosting company.
Does it work if you try locally?
I really recommend changing smtp provider to something with a log for everything mailed from websites/services.
