Active member
Hi all, Ive just set up a new gmail account to use for Bounced Emails but get the following error in the cp.

Im pretty confident the gmail settings are correct for the bounced mail.


Any Ideas?

The configuration looks correct. It could be a firewall or some other sort of limit that is preventing your web server from connecting to the Gmail servers -- there isn't anything you can do about it directly in XenForo. It is something that you would need your host to look into.
