Thread: MT4 e mail function

  1. #1

    Default MT4 e mail function

    I can't seem to get the e mail function to properly test.
    I use gmail so I think the SMTP address is ....smtp.gmail.com.

    I'm pretty sure I have filled out the form correctly but all I get is:

    2010.07.25 14:34:24 Mail: error connecting to smtp.gmail.com

    Can anyone help me or direct me to a forum that is more suited to this kind of query?

    Thanks

    Hi JXBlack,

    I also get issues with gmail,

    Try gmx.com

    SMTP Server: mail.gmx.com:587
    SMTP Login : yourusername@gmx.com
    SMTP Passsword: yourpassword
    From: yourusername@gmx.com
    To: wherever you want the email to go.

    Thanks for your help but this didn't work for me. Is their some significance to the number 587?
    I tried with and without but it still came up:

    2010.07.27 09:06:41 Mail: error connecting to mail.gmx.com:

    Hi JXBlack,

    It is the smtp port, try 465 instead of 587.

    Otherwise ask the smtp address to your isp.

    gmx no longer support for MT4
    use gawab.com more better than gmx.

    smtp.gawab.com:587
