Win 7 Prof
Areca V7.2.5
java version "1.6.0_17"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_17-b04)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.3-b01, mixed mode)


Since V7.2.5 "send test mail" always failed (at least with my gmail account).
It is difficult to know the reason because the error message is so complicated (see log in attachment).

    you use port 25 - use port 465 ("smtp.google.com:465" in the "server" field))

    With "smtp.googlemail.com:465" (not "smtp.google.com:465!) and checked "SMTP's" sending test mails works. Thanks!
    But it would be very useful if the port were displayed and could be entered in a separate field (I didn't know the syntax for server names with a specific port).
    And: a help function for all the mail data would be very useful as well (I still do not know what the check box "SMTP's" really mean since outgoing e-mails always use smtp doesn't it?).

    By the way: if "SMTP's" is not set (checked) then Areca crashes if you click on button "send test mail" (nothing happens, Areca does not respond to user interactions and you have to kill it).
