Hi,


I found you AcyMailing great and I'm considering to use it with virtuemart.

My problem is that my domain name sends all the mails in to the spamtraps and I want to send the mails via an alternative gmail account. I've configured you applications but I get following erros:

Error Sending Message "Test e-mail from www.myplace.com/" to "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." | SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.

Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to ssl://smtp.gmail.com:465 (Connection timed out) in /var/www/vhost/myplace.com/home/html/administrator/components/com_acymailing/inc/phpmailer/class.smtp.php on line 122
SMTP -> ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection timed out (110)

Thanks for your assitance and regards

Mario

Hi,

Your configuration seems ok in order to connect to gmail mail server, so I suppose that the problem is that your hosting is blocking outgoing connections from your server at least on port 465.
You should try to ask them about the problem, maybe they will unblock outgoing connections at least on this port.
