Settings for SMPT with Gmail - Nov 23

Post by wmorg »

 
After reading some topics about configuring the phpBB email sending with Gmail SMPT, and as an update of the situation, what I am getting is:

"
Error Email
» EMAIL/SMTP
/forum/adm/index.php?i=acp_board&sid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&mode=email

Unable to get response codes from email server.
Backtrace

Connecting to smtp.gmail.com:587

# EHLO

# HELO
"

In summary, the error is:

"
"501-5.5.4 Empty HELO/EHLO argument not allowed, closing connection
"

Maybe phpBB is not including something in the HELO/EHLO argument?

Or that if it included something, the negotiation would be accepted?

I think gmail changed things. Do you even get a password that is used with gmail? They now use OAuth and it may not work like it used to with phpBB and SMTP.

If all you need are sends Amazon has a solution called Amazon Simple Email Service.

YMMV of course. I've never tried it, but looks interesting.

It is better to use an email address in your domain name rather than a Gmail address
Sorry for my English ... I do my best!
