Re: Google hosted email



fixed

Hi Brad,

We're using the php mail() API and it has no problems sending basic email to gmail or indeed the "problem" email account which is a google hosted private domain.

As I noted before: "I have succeeded in sending simple emails from the IBM i to those same accounts - so it appears to be content related but ..."

It is not _all_ email that disappears into the ether - just some.

As to the balance of your question re TLS and SSL I cannot answer that as we use the mail server at idevcloud and it is supposed to be whitelisted etc. with google.

The client has now added our IP to his companies whitelist as well so we'll see if that does anything.

It is just so frustrating that they don't bounce the damn mail or anything so you are always flying blind in trying to determine what went wrong.

Jon,

what are you using to send the email? What command? And is it set up
properly for both TLS or SSL and authentication? These are required.

Google use to let it go by, but now I've noticed they don't anymore if it's
not authenticated.

Thanks for the links Louis - but the client in question is receiving mail
from others, and even simple mail from us so I don't think it is a service
failure issue.

Jon,

Google's status page reports everything ok:

On the other hand, the "downdetector" website seems to imply that there
are
some users out there with problems:

I'm having trouble sending emails not just to gmail accounts but also to
some commercial gmail hosted accounts.

Nothing is showing up in the spam filters and no bounce messages.

I have succeeded in sending simple emails from the IBM i to those same
accounts - so it appears to be content related but ...

Anyone have any experience of similar problems with google hosted mail?
