Hello,

I have a few powershell scripts setup to backup data etc.
The scripts use GMAIL smtp to send me a completed report.

Since moving to Telecom from VF I am unable to connect to SMTP.GMAIL.COM

The relevant ports have been forwarded.
I was wondering if Telecom block SMTP rely?

Anyone shed some light on it please

Telecom have blocked port 25 for ~5 years now. There is (or at least used to be) a web form in the customer portal to unblock this.

If you can't fix it with a Big Hammer, chances are you've got an electrical problem!

Since you are on Telecom, you can use smtp.xtra.co.nz, this requires no auth and can get to anywhere from a telecom connection

I havent had issues with gmail being blocked when I have set it up at various places but it does require different ports and ssl

Standard configuration instructions:
Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL:pop.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS2 or SSL:smtp.gmail.com
Use Authentication: Yes
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
Port for SSL: 465Server timeoutsGreater than 1 minute, we recommend 5Full Name or Display Name: [your name]Account Name or User Name: your full email address (including @gmail.com or @your_domain.com)Email Address: your email address ([email protected] or username@your_domain.com)Password: your Gmail password

quick telnet test to smtp.gmail.com on 465 comes fail.
Port 587 worked a treat - which I had set to fwd.

In powershell you can set the particular port using.

.Port = 587

$smtpserver = ?smtp.gmail.com?
$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
#$att = new-object Net.Mail.Attachment($filename)
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer )
$smtp.port = 587
$smtp.EnableSsl = $True

Port 587 is no security. Port 465 is SSL/TLS on my Thunderbird.

Have you tried contact Gmail to see if they know? They may have logs.
