    Talking Send Mail using Gmail

    This forum is very useful. I don't have a question this time but just to share some knowledge in case someone wants to use PDI (v3.2 I am using) to send alerts via Gmail. This is useful without needing to use your own SMTP, sometimes not available. Couple of older threads had issues / errors without a full solution. Anyway, here's my 2 cents

    1. Ensure you have a Gmail account with Google.
    2. In Job, create the Mail step. Click the server tab.

    SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
    Port: 465
    Authentication: check
    Authentication User: youraccount@gmail.com
    Authentication Password: *******
    Use Secure Authentication: checked
    Secure Connection Type: SSL

    There u go...

    It works fine for PDI (very helpful) but does not seem to work for Pentaho BI Server CE 5.0.1. What am I doing Wrong ?
