    FMS Bacs email setup with Gmail

    Hi
    I have a school who is trying to setup FMS for BACS payments.

    As part of this, FMS wants you to put in SMTP settings so it can send out remittance advice. The school uses Google Apps for their school email!

    The settings you put in for this are just smtp.gmail.com with a port number of 465 or 587. You then tick a box saying it needs authentication and you enter your email address and password. Unfortunately, when you press Test Settings, it doesnt work.

    I have a feeling it may be to do with Google wanting an SSL connection and FMS not knowing what that is but i don't really know for sure.

    Any ideas?

    Does the account you are giving it have IMAP or POP3 enabled? as you will need to define a account because google won't just let random emails out...

    Access to smtp.gmail.com isn't blocked from your network is it?

    Might need the firewall opening up to allow communications out.

    when the BACS run is run the emails are generated on the FMS workstation not the FMS server, this machine needs to be able to connect out of the firewall to send the emails.

    Thread Zombie!

    I know this thread is almost a year old, However we are also trying to use FMS email with Google apps smtp. I can't get it to work. We also have paper cut the uses Google SMTP server to email report and that works fine (after adding a firewall rule).

    I can't get FMS BACS working to save my life!

    Just wanted to know if you guys found a fix to your issues.
