    Now when I am trying to send email using oneclick below error is displayed

     

     

    Can someone help me where I was wrong.

    Everything you're doing is wrong. The OneClick server should use a MTA that is not using STARTTLS or authentication. I recommend to use a relay that would connect to gmail and authenticate accordingly. The relay should accept incoming connections from SPECTRUM machine without any restrictions. OneClick server does not support authentication for MTA.

    Catalin is there any option instead of using relay to connect to gmail.As I don't own a relay gmail.

     

    So can you please help me to know about other option of configuring email for my spectrum.

    On what OS are you running your SPECTRUM installation?

    Configure locally an instance of Postfix to relay emails to google, and use the localhost to send emails. Just google for "configure postfix relay to google" and you'll see lots of tutorials on how to configure it.

     

    Second, set your mailhost to your localhost address. That should be it.

    Catalin I have configured my localhost as postfix relay to google.I am able to send email using command prompt.But when I am trying to send using Spectrum I am getting below error:

    ln email configuration at SMTP hostname I have specified my localhost address.Is that what I have to do?

    The message is self explanatory. Try to telnet to the IP you set as smtphost on port 25. If you're successful, it should work. You should check the firewall also.
