GMail - Must issue a STARTTLS command first

Postby sraitken » Fri Sep 07, 2012 6:05 pm

I am getting a "5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first..." error message popping-up when trying to send a test email via GMail. Settings are:

SMTP host:
Port: 587
UserName: <email address>
Password: <password for above>
Send From: <same as email address in UserName>

Thanks for any help.

SQL Backup's e-mail delivery feature does not support TLS/SSL connections.

Is this still the case? v7.7.0.18

Will it ever be the case? Our email is provided by Amazon SES, which requires it.
