email notification

Aug 28, 2014 at 6:22 PM
NFG so might ask dumb question. I have been trying to turn on email notification for 2 days and have not had any success yet. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. IIS installed, and program cleared in windows defender for internet access. I know I have entered to correct information because I have done it about 20 times. All it says is Test failed could not send email. Am I doing something wrong in my settings. Could find no information on subject. Computer in in another part of house and require a lot of running back and forth to check progress.

Click on the Events link on the main GUI page. See what errors the event log shows and post it here (regarding the email)

Likely reasons
1. Wrong configuration (port, address or ssl/tls - they are different)
2. Firewall blocking the outgoing ports/address
3. Email server is down

The reason will show up in the windows event log from mcebuddy

I am sure it's something like that.
I have also tried Port 465 with SSL...same results. Both email addresses are active.
Here is the event/log:

The operation has timed out.

It's a configuration issue. Check your port I think gmail smtp requires port 587 with SSL

Thanks! I changed the port to 587 and it worked perfectly. I love your program
