Hi, I am currently using SMTP to send e-mails via my website. Now I want to use Gmail for sending the e-mail. The server for www.gearedgeeks.com (joomla) is unable to connect to SMTP : smtp.gmail.com, port 465, ssl. Would this functionality be available at your hosting service ?

I do not want to use Godaddy's email system as I dont like the interface and would like to use GMAIL for the emails.

Can you please let me know what is the way I can get it working.

To understand the issue please visit : http://www.gearedgeeks.com/site/contact-us
This is the error I encounter : SMTP Error! Could not connect to SMTP host

And these are the settings I am using :

Mailer : SMTP
E-mail support@gearedgeeks.com
Sendmail Path : /usr/sbin/sendmail
SMTP Authentication : No
SMTP Security : SSL
SMTP Port : 465
SMTP Username : support@gearedgeeks.com
SMTP Pwd : **********
SMTP Host : smtp.gmail.com

Please advise asap. Thanks.
