Hi, how can I configure Odoo 9.0 email module Outgoing/Incoming servers for use with Gmail?

I configured outgoing email server as the Google Guide settings but when click "test connection" odoo give error "11004 getaddrinfo failed". please help me to resolve this problem.

odoo 9 on windows.

server: smtp.gmail.com

port 465

our company's mail server is on https domain and configured on Microsoft outlook with Microsoft exchange as default, so can I set it on odoo?

Hello Reza,

You are getting this error because of python library "urllib2"

You need to Use  Connection Security : SSL/TLS

Make sure you are not using Gmail's Two-Factor Verification Option

Enable "Allow Less Secure Apps " in You Gmail  Account Setting

After This You will get

"Connection Test Succeeded! Everything seems properly set up!"

*If you are still getting Error try using other email id or try in Linux Environment to Test Connection
