Why are you using gmail 's smtp on the one hand and ask about your hosting provider's smtp on the other?
that error "smtp.gmail.com 465 - Network is unreachable (101)"
means your server can't connect to there at that port.
So, simply pass that to your host support again and insist that they look why your server can't connect to there
some hosts are really pain to deal with
jazzc - i'm using the g mail fro a better inbox rating and i am asking them to solve the issue because they created it(the scripts works great on my local machine and it worked on their servers until their last update on server config...
innozemec - yeap, really a big pain in the... they said they can't help because the script is not created by them )...
any sugesstions for a smal "cold mail" campaign (maximum 1000 email per month...)
it has nothing to do with the script, but with the server setup
do it by yourself or ask them to do: on ssh, type "telnet smtp.gmail.com 465" if it doesn't get connected then it is server/firewall issue
thanks for helping...
it seams that i need to stick with their smtp...
any ideas/ tips for 500 -700 emails per month?
how do i get them to inbox...?
Man don't use gmail unless you really have to. I had to setup gmail for a number of clients using PHPMailer and believe me, I had to configure them with new ports every-time I had to do it. Sometime it works and sometime it doesn't. So, use your Server provider's SMTP for better result.
