How do I set up email alerts using a Gmail account? I cant get the settings right. I click send test and in brings up a dialog box saying Connecting to Host with Ok as the only option. I click Ok and get the colored ball.

I have only a few notes about this setup, from previous postings. The problem is that the correct settings depend on which ISP you are using.

1. Gmail requires support for SSL, so make sure that the SSL box is checked.

2. Change the SMTP server to match what is in your Apple Mail setup. I think the SMTP server should refer to your local ISP, not gmail.

3. Check which port your Apple Mail is set to use with gmail. Most ISPs block port 25, yet there is at least one that requires it.

If you cannot get the settings to work, please send a screen capture of the window with the settings to This email address is being protected from spambots.
