A quick look at google suggests that you should enable SSL - maybe turn "SMTP SSL/TLS" to "On"?

Thank you Jcleeland.

I turn "SMTP SSL/TLS" to "SSL" like this:

It still didn't work as:

I have no idea about if I need some required configuration on Gmail account.
Do you think so?

And now what I want is could find a available SMTP email could help me send these invitations to participants, so please give me your suggestions if you know any email Website which could works well in limesurvey.

Thanks.

I have to admit, I would have been surprised if google would allow their server to be used by an online application to send out mass emails.

Have you tried using the default PHP(Default) setting instead of SMTP? A properly set up web server should work fine using this.

Otherwise it's up to you to find someone who is happy for their SMTP email server to be used for this purpose.

Really thanks for your reply, jcleelandB)

Actually, I tried using PHP(default), like:

and the result was to:

Why? Did I need to configure some PHP files, if yes, would you please guide me how to do it?

Thanks a lot.

When I looked at the SMTP address, I noticed that you are missing the port number. The address needs to be in the format of:

smtp.gmail.com:465

where the address is for your SMTP server, and the 465 is the port number your mail server is listening to when using SSL. Without a port number, you are in effect trying to call the server with dialing the phone. The port number varies with the server.

see GMail Configuration

Hope this helps.
