Gmail SMTP server/IP

Post by tolagarf » 24 Nov 2018, 08:21

Does anyone know which Gmail SMTP server/IP Filebot uses to send emails through gmail with when using the --def gmail= argument? I'm asking because my VPN service is blocking it apparently and they need to know that information in order to white list me.

FileBot uses the HOST smtp.gmail.com to send email via Gmail. What IP that HOST resolves to depends on your DNS configuration and can change over time or depend on your location.

Alright so I'm still having issues with my VPN, if someone could answer what port and protocol Filebot uses to send email with gmail. SSL or TLS? Oddly enough I can send emails using gmail web client when connected to my VPN, yet Filebot can't get through.

Gmail SMTP uses TLS on Port 587:

Code: Select all

mailhost: 'smtp.gmail.com', mailport: '587', ssl: 'no', enableStartTLS: 'yes'
:idea: Gmail is a website, so it doesn't use SMTP to send email.
