    Hi, when I send test email, I get the following error

    SMTP -> ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection refused (111)

    I'm setting up a Gmail account for port 587

    settings I enter in the plugin

    From Email (email@gmail.com)
    From Name jorge

    select (Send all WordPress emails via SMTP).

    Host SMTP (smtp.gmail.com)
    SMTP Port (587)

    Encryption (Use TLS encryption. This is not the same as STARTTLS. MOST For SSL servers is the recommended option.)
    Authentication (Yes: Use SMTP authentication).

    Username (email@gmail.com)
    pass (xxxxxxxx)

    I have a hostgator account I wonder if I have to change something in my cpanel.

    I appreciate your help

    In my environment:
    - WordPress 3.5.2
    - WP-mail-SMTP 0.9.1
    - WP-SMTP 1.1.5
    - Hosted in GoDaddy

    Through Settings -> WP-SMTP set:

    From: my email ("asdf@gmail.com")
    From Name: "Whatever you like"
    Host: localhost
    SMTP Secure: None
    Port: 25
    SMTP Authentication: No
    All the other fields empty.

    Then through Settings -> Email Set:
    From email: (blank)
    From name: "Whatever you like"
    Send all WordPress emails via SMTP option selected
    Encryption: No encryption
    Authentication: No
    All the other fields empty.

    And that's it.

    Specifically I was configuring it with Contact Forms 7 so, even when it didn't work for me, these pages gave me some guidance:

    I made a short tutorial in my blog, showing some screenshots if you need more help.
