Email Test Error (SOLVED)

(1/4) > >>

I don't know what to do any more.

I have tested all firmwares i can find. same in all of them.
I have tried yahoo, gmail and my ISP bahnhof. Non of them can complete the test.

I have followed instructions carful from the providers on how to set it up. Nothing works.

On my dcs-933L it works but not on my dcs-2230
Why is that? Is my camera broken? Sounds so strange.

Followed this guide also:

Procedure: Gmail
SMTP Server Address
SMTP Server Port           587 or 465
Sender E-mail Address
Receiver E-mail Address
User Name                  myname
Password                   my e-mail account password

Try full email as username? Just a guess

Yes of course i use that.
I actually found the issue today.

With Gmail its compleetly necessary to use (StartTLS) and the only port that works is 587.

took me like 7 hours of testing before finding this out :( Yahoo never worked and not my ISP either. The strange is that yahoo worked on my dcs-933l camera, and the exact same settings it had did not work with the dcs-2230. Thats confusing.

So for some other ppl with troubles:
My setup now is:

Sender email address:
Recipient email address:
Server address:
User name: emailname
Password: gmail email password
Port: 587
This server requires a secure connection (StartTLS): startls ON

Hard Harry:
FYI, here are some additional methods of configuring to send through Gmail's SMTP server. Each have their specific requirements. Might come in handy for those devices that aren't compatible with TLS.
