Hello ike71. Yes you have the correct outgoing server and port information.

 

Just wanted to clarify if the camera itself is operational and the issue you're experiencing is solely with the email alerts or if you also need assistance getting the camera fully connected.

Did you (and can you) set the SSL option.  Signon is required so you also need to give it a clear text userid and password.

The only problem is with the email.

No SSL option, all I have is TLS or STARTTLS.

Ike71,

 

 

Try with TLS its the same port which is 465 for the foscam email setup..Make sure you submit before you test the settings.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Todd

Todd,

 

Test  ...  Failed
The sender is denied by the server. Maybe the server need to authenticate the user, please check it and try again
