You could try port 587, other seem to have success with that
<add key=”smtpServer” value=”smtp.gmail.com”/>
<add key=”port” value=”587”/>
<add key=”useSSL” value = “True”/>
<add key=”username” value=”<redacted>@gmail.com”/>
<add key=”password” value=”<redacted>”/>

Yesterday i tried with this port number also , but till now no email response not at came.
Could send me any screen shots for working email options with gmail.
This is the best guide I have seen and the author also uses Gmail
Make sure to tick the Enable email subscriptions!
and also restart the Server once amended!!
So, we need to tick all the below 3 check box right?
1) "send Email alerts for server health issues"
2) "enable email subscriptions"
3) "enable TLS"
Usually we need to tick only "email subscriptions", any way i will follow with your guidelines.
We can tick all the check box then only mail will go?
Some where, i have seen some body mentioned the below details: tls://smtp.gmail.com ,port 465
In SMTP place , i need to use " tls://smtp.gmail.com " (or) just " smtp.gmail.com "
Based on your valuable information , i will follow with the same : " smtp.gmail.com " , Port : 587
Can i proceed with these details.
Thanks a lot for your valuable support.
Personally I would tick all 3, but for your requirements definitely at least 2+3.
Once done, you will need to restart the server.
Try port 587 (with TLS ticked) first
if not, amend port, restart Server and retest
Hope it works, if not, please post back
It would help if there was a way to send a test email without configuring a subscription
