Can dasBlog support Gmail SMTP?

May 9, 2009 at 6:59 PM

I'm finding that if I check dasBlog's "Send using SSL" configuration option, testing my SMTP server (at Gmail) generates this error:


while processing Server does not support secure connections.

But if I uncheck it, testing my SMTP server generates this error:

while processing The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first. 5sm3509958agc.15.

Is this because dasBlog doesn't support TLS, only SSL?

I've been using gMail via smtp from dasBlog for over a year now.  My settings look like this:

SMTP Server:

Notification E-mail address: <your gmail address here>

Enable SMTP Basic Authentication: Checked

SMTP Username: <your gmail address here>

SMTP Password: <your gmail password here>

SMTP Port: 587 

Send using SSL: Checked
