The host 'mail.gmail.com' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the

Its a problem with the ISP is displayed when the user is trying to send emails to a different service provider in spite of getting connected through another service provider. Just turn off the firewall and anti-malware.

Hi,

Please try the following solutions, I hope it will work:

1. Please check the spellings of your server name with lower case letters.

2. Secondly check your internet connection. Open your browser just check.

3. Go for ping by NAME and IP

4. If you can ping by IP and not by NAME then check your DNS settings.

5. If both the ping fails then restore the TCP/IP in the network stack.

Regards,

There are two possible solutions to your problem.

Solution 1: You have to enable SSL connection for your POP service. In the advance tab of POP client, select enable “This server requires an encrypted connection SSL for SMTP”

Solution 2: Do these settings under advance tab of your client,

Incoming mail (POP3) is 110

Outgoing mail (SMTP) is 25.
