scheduled backup fail/success email not working

Post by justsomeguy6575 » Tue Oct 28, 2014 6:11 pm

I've been trying to get r-drive to send an email through my gmail account when backup fails. Can r-drive not send on port 465 SSL ? I believe I've had this working in the past using a different email but using port 25 non-SSL.

Maybe I don't understand you correctly, but R-Drive Image sends mails to port 25 non-ssl by default.

yes it works if using port 25 non-ssl. I need to set it up using 465 ssl with a gmail account but can't get it to send.

Well, currently R-Drive Image doesn't support SSL.

Thanks
I figured that must be the case. Is this planned in the future?

Quite possible. But no promises.
