how did you get gmail to work? since they required authentication, so port 25 won't work? Is there trick to do that, or I'm just missing something?
I am very interested in sending forecasts by email.I have followed the configuration guide published in step 1 "Configuring Metatrader 5 for Email".Thus I have created a gmail account. I have tested the access to this account with "Windows Live Mail" client => it works.When I try to access the same account using Metatrader 5 (Version 5.00 Build 496) I receive the following error message "Failed send data, server error code 530".
Thanks in advance for your help.Blueyes
In addition to my previous post when I configured my Gmail account in Windows Live Mail client, I modified the default port value (25) of smtp.gmail.com server with value 465.
What is the default value used in Metatrader 5 client (25) ? Is it possible to modify this value ?
I modified the configuration of the field "SMTP server" with the value smtp.gmail.com:465 => it works perfectly now.
This article helps, thank you!

Becoming a Fearless Forex Trader
There is one commonality with traders who can trade without fear. They
build losing trades into their approach. It’s similar to a gambit in
chess and it takes away the edge and strong-hold that fear has on many
traders. For those non-chess players, a gambit is a play in which you
sacrifice a low-value piece, like a pawn, for the sake of gaining an
advantage. In trading, the gambit could be your first trade that allows
you to get a better taste of the edge you’re sensing at the moment the
trade is entered.
James Stanley’s USD Hedge is a great example of a strategy that works
under the assumption that one trade will be a loser. What’s the
significance of this? It pre-assumes the loss and will allow you to
trade without the fear that plagues so many traders. Another tool that
you can use to help you define if the trend is staying in your favor or
going against you is a fractal.
If you look outside of the world of trading and chess, there are other
businesses that presume a loss and therefore are able to act with a
clear head when a loss comes. Those businesses are casinos and insurance
companies. Both of these businesses presume a loss and work only in
line with a calculated risk, they operate free of fear and you can as
well if you presume small losses as part of your strategy.
Another great Mark Douglas quote:
“The less I cared about whether or not I was wrong, the clearer things
became, making it much easier to move in and out of positions, cutting
my losses short to make myself mentally available to take the next
opportunity.” -Mark Douglas
