    Hi,

    The username is your Gmail address and the password is your Gmail password.  Port should be 25 and smtp.gmail.com for the server:

    smtp.gmail.comsmtp.gmail.com

    That should be the proper settings.

    If you are still unable to get the notifications to go through, let us know and we will be happy to have another look.

    Here is the setup for gmail:

    Hostname: smtp.gmail.com

    Port: 25

    Username: your gmail username

    Password: your gmail password

    Security ProtocolL TLS

    This should work properly.
