Hello,

 

I'm looking for a little insight if anyone can provide it regarding use of Google Apps Email and vBulletin forums Email.

 

Related thread, but I don't know his is working since its been a few month. :)

 

Currently, I have my domain setup w/ a google apps account and a few users created.

 

Mike of MDDHosting quickly implemented the CNAME and MX record changes neccessary. This was verified by DNSSTuff test.

 

I have done some test emails whereby I send to the Google App email, call it googleapp@mydomain.com, and it gets forwarded to chosen email account. The forwarding I set via settings of googleapp@mydomain.com

 

 

So now I see that works as expected.

 

 

My question now is how to configure the appropriate SMTP options in vBulletin. I've run across the following link for assistance:

 

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer....mp;answer=13287

 

So in my vB panel > Email Options

 

smtp server: smtp.gmail.com

 

username/account name: forums@mydomain.com (set up to also forward to desired email)

 

password: password of the above email account

 

Set to SSL and tried with ports 25, 465, 587

 

 

I also have the Bounce Email set to: forums@mydomain.com

 

 

My test for this is using the Contact Us form, which any guest can use.

 

Can anyone shed some light on this aspect or tips in troubleshooting?

 

Thanks

A few quick ideas for you to try:

 

1- Try using a "+" in place of the "@" in your username... some clients are weird and have issues with the "@".

 

Example: scott+mygoogleapps.com instead of scott@mygoogleapps.com

 

2- Try port 26 and no SSL. As for running the SSL, I think you have the correct ports, but then you get into verifying certificate identities and such and I can't really help with that.

 

Best of luck,

- Scott
