  1. Hi,
    I have been trying to get Imap mail service working for my dvr but however I have had no luck. Im pretty sure I have the correct settings as you can see in the attachment but keeps failing. I even did a online test with pingability to ping smtp.gmail.com but that was failing aswell. This service still does work doesn't it?
    Any help would be great

    Thanks

    Because you're accessing the pop3 side smtp.gmail.com
    You need smtp.googlemail.com port 465
