GMAIL issue not allowing me to send out emails from EM client

hello. I tried adding a gmail email to my EM client and keep getting an SMTP error. I can receive emails but I cannot send them out.

Did you setup your Gmail account via the automatic email wizard, or the manual / other option.

Also what are your SMTP Gmail account settings.

Lastly what’s the actual error you are getting, and what version of eM Client are you running.

I used the wizard. Oddly enough it works when I turn off my VPN. Anyway around it

Most VPNs tend to interfere or block mail clients and ports etc due to the way VPNs work, and you have to specially configure your VPN to allow eM Client access.

You need to contact your VPN support via website or phone to see how to configure your VPN as they are all different setup’s.
