    I use this plugin on a few sites with gmail, suddenly since yesterday, the plugin does not work anymore, I did not do any change on the site and with the gmail passwords but when I try to send a test email, it say that there is authantication error.
    Please advice, this is a crucial error, now I see that the plugin did not update for more then 2 years..

    The plugin is ok, the port 465 to gmail has been blocked by HostGator, now it's working after they removed the block

    My hostgator guy said it hasn't been blacklisted and referenced this article http://blog.hostgator.com/2013/08/23/global-blacklisting-results-in-undeliverable-email/

    Check if your host provider has changed the requirement to explicitly name the email SMTP host. For example, it seems Godaddy used to allow the host name "localhost" but now requires something like smtp.secureserver.net. You'll have to check with your own host provider.
