How to fix this error with bounce email settings in Gmail?

9 replies
I was trying to add bounce email settings in Gmail,
using the following details:

The required fields are:
Bounce Address: --------> myemailname@gmail.com
Bounce Server: ----------> smtp.gmail.com
Bounce Password: ------> app password
Bounce port: ------------> smtp.gmail.com
Account Type: ----------> Enabled the IMAP service of the email account (bounce address)

As explained in the training guide how to add emails into (sending server) and generate the necessary credentials using the below links:
https://myaccount.google.com/signino...enroll-welcome
link: https://security.google.com/settings...y/apppasswords

In the sending server everything done appropriately,
in the bounce settings, always showing an error: Unable to connect to server using provided settings,
Any one experienced the same issue?
Thanks in advance!

    Bounce port: ------------> 587
    Account Type: ----------> Enabled the IMAP service of the email account (bounce address)

    you sure the port is right? imap is inbound, ports are 143 and 993 usually

    587 is a port normally used for outgoing mail

    Gmail Imap non-encryped and startTLS should be 143. For SSL it should be 993.

    Just noticed you have the wrong server listed.

    imap.gmail.com not smtp.gmail.com

    This server is undefined, this is the more common error of Err SSL Protocol Error, just get this and try to find its accurate solution with the best troubleshooting guide.
