Title: Gmail SMTP "Couldn't reach server. Please double-check the server..."
Post by: ifubiok on December 13, 2017, 12:42:12 PM
Attempting to setup SMTP email to a Lunarpages email account through Gmail.
I've used "server.lunarpages.com" and "mail.domain.org" where server is the customer's lunarpages server and domain is the customer's domain name. Both server definitions work with Thunderbird.
Tried all combinations of ports 465, 587 and 25, with both TLS & SSL ssecure conenctions. Even tried port 25 unsecured.
Always get the same response on the Gmail setup screen. "Couldn't reach server. Please double-check the server and port number."
If you've you've been successful setting up Gmail send/receive to a Lunarpages email account, let me know where I'm going wrong.
