I am not able to connect with my email server. I have a gmail account I have been using to send alerts and daily logs. It has stopped working and I get an error that the smtp is not correct. I haven't changed the settings and I've checked that smtp.gmail.com and port 587 are correct for gmail. Anybody else experiencing this problem?

Mine is working correctly with those settings. Do you also have the authentication box checked in WC preferences? You need it checked if your gmail account is using SSL or TLS.

I am also using gmail for my station. I have Port=587 and Authentication checked. No problems here.
