Hi,

Please let me know the SMTP configuration that needs be configured in Day CQ Mail Service to connect to gmail.

I have tried the following

# Configuration created by Apache Sling JCR Installer

smtp.password="my gmail account password"

debug.email=B"false"

smtp.port=I"465"

smtp.user="username"

smtp.ssl=B"false"

from.address="my gmail id"

smtp.host="smtp.gmail.com"

I have tried the port numbers both 465 and 587.

https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps . I have turned on this setting as well. But I am not able to connect getting the connection refused error.

Please help me in this regard.

Thanks in advance

Regards,

Vijaya

Hi ,

Can you try to enable SSL?

Below is google smtp relay servers details

Fully qualified domain name of SMTP service
smtp-relay.gmail.comsmtp.gmail.comaspmx.l.google.com
Configuration options
  • Options: Port 25, 465, or 587
  • Secure Socket Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols.
  • Dynamic IPs are allowed, but a static IP might be required due to authentication requirements.
  • Port 465 (SSLrequired)
  • Port 587 (TLS required)
  • Dynamic IPs allowed
  • Port 25
  • TLS not required
  • Dynamic IPs allowed
  • Mail can only be sent to Gmail or G Suite users.

Can you check STEP 2 also at Send email from a printer, scanner, or app - G Suite Administrator Help

Thanks

Arun

Try writing your own email serve using Java MAIL API. See if that works for  your use case. See this article -- Scott's Digital Community: Creating custom CQ email services

For some reason - gmail and MessageServiceGateway seems to produce issues.
