Outgoing Email Gateway Configuration Error on Odoo V8

Hi there,

I've been having some trouble with configuring the outgoing mail server for an Odoo v8 instance currently hosted on a cloud server(Ubuntu OS). I have however successfully configured the incoming email gateway and tested it with positive results.

My configuration parameters for the outgoing mail are:
Description: company name
Priority: 5
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: 465
Connection Security: SSL/TLS
Username: username@gmail.com
Password: userpassword

However every time i try to test the connection i get a warning:

Connection Test Failed! Here is what we got instead: 101 Network is unreachable

What could i be doing wrong? The incoming gate way is working fine

- GMAIL must be setup to accept smtp connection

- port number or smtp server name incorrect
