    I followed the instructions in the text file for the VMware software appliance V3.5 for changing the smtp settings to use gmail but invitees are not receiving the invite request. I have tried port 25 and port 465

    What am I doing wrong?

    ________________

    1) Open dimdim.properties configuration file

    Go to folder cd /<dimdim_home>/ConferenceServer/apache-tomcat-5.5.17/webapps/dimdim/WEB-INF/classes/resources/

    i.e. cd /usr/local/dimdim/ConferenceServer/apache-tomcat-5.5.17/webapps/dimdim/WEB-INF/classes/resources/

    2) Modify the below settings as suggested. Please note that setting "dimdim.smtptype" needs to be configured depending on the type of smtp server.

      Figured it out:

      email.user=myuserid@gmail.com

      should have been

      email.user=myuserid
