    Check the server port.

    Question: What Are the Gmail SMTP Settings?
    Looking for the Gmail SMTP server settings?
    Answer: The Gmail SMTP server settings for sending mail through Gmail from any email program are:
    • Gmail SMTP server address: smtp.gmail.com
    • Gmail SMTP user name: Your full Gmail address (e.g. example######################)
    • Gmail SMTP password: Your Gmail password
    • Gmail SMTP port: 465
    • Gmail SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Your screen shot shows port 587.

    Different servers use different ports.

    Cheers
    Rod
