So you’ve followed Google’s instructions for getting smtp working from Outlook 2010, and yet Outlook is still returning with an error!? If you are experiencing this problem, then here’s the quick fix.

Outlook 2010 and Gmail setup, it works :)

Problem: Outlook returning error, namely:

Send test e-mail message: Cannot send the message. Verify the e-mail address in your account properties.

The fix:

Incoming mail server: pop.gmail.com
Outgoing mail server: smtp.gmail.com
Incoming Server Port: 995 (SSL)
Outgoing Server Port: 465 (SSL)

Check SMTP requires authentication from More Settings > Outgoing Server dialog

    Yeah! Fixed that “Verify your address problem” alright!

    Duh.

    Fixed by deleting GMail account and adding it back, using your settings. (Might have worked with 587, but couldn’t be asked to try).

    @Harry - I couldn’t get the 587 port to work either, but this seems to do the trick… after trying for ages, I don’t care, just happy it’s sending and receiving :)
