Problems defining mail server

I’m having problems defining a mail server in the Lucee control panel.
I’m trying to setup a gmail account using google’s direction
https://support.google.com/a/answer/176600?hl=en and no matter what
settings I use I always get:

request ((fail to retrieve path:java.lang.NullPointerException:null):5) has
run into a timeout (50 seconds) and has been stopped.
Has anyone been successful in
a) defining a mail server ,any?
b) defining gmails mail server ?

thanks in advance.

Lucee takes about 5 minutes to display this error.

Well, yes, I think a lot of people are probably setting up mail servers
fine :slight_smile:
If you open the file up, that appears to be the line number of the verify
call.
This suggest it can’t connect to the SMTP server at all.
Could there be a firewall or DNS issue ? Can you telnet to the SMTP server
from the command line of the box ?
