Admin Email Setup - Keeps Failing
I can't get YaBB to email.  

Here is the setup.  It is Yabb 2.5 AE
In the Admin, Advanced Settings, Email tab

Send using - YaBB SMTP Engine
SMTP-Sever smtp.gmail.com
Server Auth - AUTO
User name xxx@gmail.com
password - xxxx
Webmaster - same as User name above, but I tried to have them different as well.

I get the following error message.

SMTP connection could not be established

I've been searching for information on the web, I've tried lots of things, and I just can't make it work.

Re: Admin Email Setup - Keeps Failing
You have this posted within a Linux/Unix support area, I note this due to the fact normally they use Sendmail, SMPT is usually used with Windows servers.
