How do you configure the email alerts?
I put in my smtp.gmail.com and it had fields for email address and user name. The test failed. Any suggestions...is the user name the email address?

Thanks for your time and a great product!

Firstly, if you haven't already done so, download OpenSSL as explained here.

Secondly, configure the e-mail settings as shown below.

Is this configuration still supposed to work? I always get the "email sending failed" message. I tried both 32 and 64 bit files from OpenSSL to be sure.

Maybe it doesn't matter but, when I chose the 'secure to regular' connection I get an e-mail from google that a login attempt was blocked

Finally found the problem. Had to enable access for less secure apps in the Google Account Settings.
