[SOLVED]cant send mail via smtp to gmail

Since yesterday I have been unable to send mail via thunderbird to gmail. Anybody else having problems with it?
EDIT:change to smtp from imap
Solution was to replace my router. This has also fixed my streaming issues.

Re: cant send mail via imap to gmail

imap is the incoming server, sending still uses relay.
Sending from Thunderbird to a gmail address (using the Force9 relay server) is working OK for me.

Re: cant send mail via smtp to gmail

I don't use any relays. My domain account has been with gmail for past couple of years.
I am having issues connecting to the smtp server - tb says connected then failed to send.
I am also having streaming issues.
I am beginning to think it may be my nic even though I have no errors shown.

Re: cant send mail via smtp to gmail

Tutorial http://usertools.plus.net/tutorials/id/21 has a section Checking the SMTP server
I suggest you try that (substituting the gmail server name) to make sure you can access it.
