XAMPP + sendmail with Gmail won't work

Postby superboer8100 » 09. December 2013 13:31

i'm curerntly having a problem with sending mails from my local XAMPP server. i changed my sendmail.ini file with the following settings:

Code: Select all
smtp_server=smtp.gmail.com
smtp_port=465
smtp_ssl=auto
debug_logfile=debug.log
error_logfile=error.log
auth_username=myusername
auth_password=mypassword
force_sender=myusername


in my php.ini at the mail part i commented all lines except for this one:

Code: Select all
sendmail_path = "\"C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t"


the error i get is the following:

Code: Select all
Socket Error # 10060 Connection timed out.


the operating system i use is windows 8.1. On other computers who have the exact same xampp installation it works fine.

does anybody have an idea what could be the problem?

I'm thinking firewall issue.

Can i check that(if a port is blocked by firewall or something like that)? i checked if i had a virusscanner/firewall running but there isn't. i also tried to turn off windows firewall but that isn't working either.
