Trying to configure SMTP for gmail in Wordpress. Not working.

Dear all,

 

I have installed Wordpress on our server and I am now trying to configure our SMTP Mailer with Gmail.

I get this fail message:

 

Connection: opening to smtp.gmail.com:587, timeout=300, options=array ()
SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions. (10013)
SMTP connect() failed.

 

I am quite sure that all settings are correct. I have read that GoDaddy does not support Gmail.

Is that correct??

I do need to use that specific mailaddress. Does anyone have the solution for me?

 

Grts,

Shanti

Heather,

I am having the same issue.  I am using wordpress, I have linux hosting.  It looks like ports 465/587 are blocked by godaddy for shared hosting.  The same plugin works on another hosting provider. 

 

Thanks
