After having filled in all setting for outgoing SMTP (using gmail) I fail to send email. The error from GMail says that the settings are incorrect (most likely). And indeed, even when I set my GMail account name in "Outgoing SMTP Username" upon clicking save and test it seems to revert to my Joomla logged in account name.
- I enter email@example.com in the textbox, click save. (and all other
settings ... duh!)
- I leave that page.
- I return to outgoing server settings.
- Now I see firstname.lastname@example.org in Outgoing SMTP Username for a split second, then it reverts to my user account so that when I attempt to send and test the settings it has MYLOGGEDINUSERNAME as the Outgoing SMTP Username
The specific error message is: Failed to connect to smtp.gmail.com:465 [SMTP: Invalid response code received from SMTP server while sending email. This is often caused by a misconfiguration in Outbound Email settings. Please verify the settings at Administer CiviCRM >> Global Settings >> Outbound Email (SMTP). (code: -1, response: )]
How do I fix this?
