Hello Upeksha,

Your mail is prolly being refused by gmail/google by default due to security / anti-spam concerns.

This is different than email not being sent but rather with email being received.

Off the top of my head you prolly do not have proper reverse dns, spf, etc just off the top of my head. These days you just can't send mail without taking proper steps beforehand as big servers refuse to support the old ways because of spam.

I've used the same setup your trying to use in the past and encountered this problem myself.

In my situation my mail delivery was delayed and ended up in the gmail spam folder (I was emailing via eZ Publish to a gmail account).

Let me assure you this is not an eZ Publish problem as eZ Mail is stable (rock solid).

You would be better served by reviewing your mail attempts for errors and checking your gmail spam folder for recommendations from google on why your mail is being either refused, delayed or filtered to the spam folder.

You may find debugging using the class helps, I'm not certain:

I hope this helps!
