Unable Send Email through SMTP

Hello All,

i have this configuration in development.rb

config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :smtp

config.action_mailer.smtp_settings = {
address: “smtp.gmail.com”,
port: 587,
domain: “gmail.com”,
authentication: “plain”,
enable_starttls_auto: true,
user_name: emailid,
password: password,
ssl: true
config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = true

Using Rails 4 and ruby 2 versions, emails are not getting delivered
in the console it shows as below
Sent mail to emailid (30012.9ms)

Hi This a mail regarding the cell rotation

and Error outs as

Net::OpenTimeout (execution expired):

Whom are you sending email to? Because which service you connect to,
and how, affects how Gmail restricts the recipients.

Make sure you’re lined up fully with,

Specifically you may need to be using, smtp-relay.gmail.com


Here’s the Environment Devise configuration.

Devise configuration settings

config.action_mailer.default_url_options = { :host => ‘your host
config.action_mailer.delivery_method = :smtp
config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = true

Are you using an ordinary gmail account or a domain account hosted on
Google Apps? For the former, you can turn on “Access for less secure
in the account settings. If you’re using the latter, you must use SSL.
not sure your port is correct. The following is a working configuration
using a domain account hosted on Google Apps.

ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = { :address =>
:port => ‘465’, :authentication => ‘plain’, :user_name
=> ‘[email protected]’, :password => ‘yourpassword’, :domain
=> ‘[email protected]’, :ssl => true }

1.) Check whether the mail id your using has two step verifiication if
change it.
2.) Check whether port 587 has been added in the IPtables if not add it
using below command.
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT

Thank you for the reply, I used ordinary gmail account, I did work
your solutions but no luck… the error “Net::OpenTimeout (execution
.” stopped appearing, but mails were not delivered.
