Mail does not work when sending to gmail
« on: September 25, 2014, 05:02:48 AM »
Hello,

After a lot of searching, I decided to choose Abantecart. The design looks very nice, however I am frustrated by a problem that I'm hoping someone can help me with.
I simply cannot get the mail notification to work :-
My email settings are :

ssl://smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: 465

I get the following errors
2014-09-25 8:25:19 - warning:  AbanteCart core v.1.1.9 fsockopen(): unable to connect to ssl://smtp.gmail.com:465 (Connection timed out) in <b>/home/katesonu/public_html/kateson/core/lib/mail.php</b> on line <b>234</b>

You help would be much appreciated.

Hello.

This is Not Abantecart related issues. Please contact your hosting provider.
A common issue with using fsockopen() command is the firewall on your server may not be configured to allow the connection that you are trying to make
