As part of Google's ongoing attempts to make GMail more secure they have recently introduced a series of measures intended to mitigate the threat from malicious applications.

Occasionally, GMail will flag up the WriteUpp connection as "insecure" and as a result it will not permit us to connect. You can turn off this extra level of validation by following the instructions in this Google Article:

If you have problems connecting with Gmail you also wish to take a look at the article below:

123-Reg

Sender Name Your Name
Sender Email Your Email
SMTP Host smtp.123-reg.co.uk
SMTP Port  25 or 587
SMTP User  Your Email
SMTP Password  Your Email Password 
Requires SSL Off

There are one or two known issues associated with using 123-reg but thankfully they have produced a very useful support article, which you can read here if you are experiencing problems authenticating. 

If your provider is not listed please contact your email provider. Much as we'd like to help we can't provide support for your email service :-)

Please be aware that all email providers are not equal. Many hosting providers (like 123-reg, Fasthosts & GoDaddy) offer email as an after thought and don't have the same infrastructure, resilience, technical support and security as the services provided by Apple, Google and Microsoft. If you are having problems using SMTP with one of the less popular providers we would recommend using a service like Google Apps.
