Found out the port is 465. All works now. Searching on google in different places they reference two different port numbers.
Thanks very much for posting this.. i have a gmail account and will try doing it soon.. i also tried setting up using my regular firstname.lastname@example.org account and it locked both my wife's and my e-mail account on the PC out over night with a "too many bad commands" error .. I'd been trying to set up the cam to trigger and use the .smtp port to send... and cox detected and locked out all my send e-mail over night coming from my network.. fortunately it auto cleared itself in the morning. GMAIL would be better since I'm assuming it's less likely to grab my ISP's attention i think.. JimS
