Doesn't anyone RTFM before posting anymore?

# Configure your client to match the settings below:
Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL:
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS: (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587

There is no need to use smtp on port 25 with gmail. configure the client according to gmail's instructions and use 465 or 587.

Hi Andy (and all who responded),

Thanks for the heads-up on the redirection on SMTP traffic. I've yet to
see an implementation of it but I agree that it's a possible solution.

As for the issue I raised previously, perhaps corporate users isn't a
good example but what about users of email services such as Gmail and
the like?
