That timout indicicates that your SMTP server is not accepting connections from your server. Another reason could be that a firewall is blocking your requests.Do you have SSH access to the server?
Quote from: Chief of Nothing on July 31, 2022, 10:56:37 PMPort 110 is reserved for POP, that is receiving mail, not sending it. I don't know why SMF has code for trying to send on port 110 built in.Generally speaking port 25 is these days reserved for mail servers to communicate with each other, not for end users to send email on however there are still hosts that configure their servers to accept mail from end users on this port.When you were trying the secure port, did you:Prepend tls:// or ssl:// to your mail server, ie tls://mail.stopguardias24h.com ?Try both of the secure ports? 465 and 587 ?If you tried to use STARTTLS in SMF then don't, leave it as just SMTP and prepend the mail server as above.Make sure you have the SMTP username correct, it is the username of the mail account and usually is in the form of the complete email address, ie, [email protected] or stopguardias24h+stopguardias24h.comGmail is a strange one and requires setting up something in Gmail now to accept mail submission so don't be surprised that one didn't work.
