Have the recent builds of MT4 broken or changed the email setup?
I've never used the email feature before, but I thought it would be easy to set up. No such luck. I looked at the docs, I googled, I watched videos, I read step-by-step instructions. I tried it with my gmail account, with my regular ISP, with/without port numbers, everything I could think of. Nothing worked. I just get "Mail: 'Test message' failed" in the Journal tab.
Thanks, but that didn't work either. I set up the gmx.com account as described in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSomE8aFa2Q and I still get "Mail: 'Test email' failed."
I'm 90% sure this used to work just fine, and without gmx.com. I almost think I tested it myself once. Now I can't get it working even WITH gmx.com.
I have a normal ISP account. I don't have any firewalls or anything like that. I can't get this to work through gmail, gmx, or my ISP. !?!?
Anyone? Any guesses why none of these approaches work? Any suggestions for ways to debug what's wrong?
I tried telnetting directly to the gmx.com SMTP server and feeding it commands. I'm no ESMTP expert but even using references on the web, I couldn't get it to accept a message.
