I'm trying to configure this plugin (I believe I will have less mail marked as spam if I send mail via SMTP rather than Bluehost's provided mail services) but I'm not having any luck.
I want to use a Google App address (so instead of @gmail.com, I have @mydomain.com). I wouldn't think the configuration changes much. After I try to send a test mail I get the following message:
An error was encountered while trying to send the test e-mail. SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.
I'm absolutely certain my password and SMTP user are fine. I also check the "user Gmail" checkbox that populates the fields with GMail's port, server, etc. What could be causing this?
