For 4 or so years, and with great success, I’ve been using Cobian Backup (For Windows, it’s free BTW) to backup various family PCs, but I had a few problems getting the email notifications to play with a gmail account.
I was aware that I had to use SSL/TLS and port 465, but it still did not work, the fix was to change a few settings.
Tools|Options|Mail|SSL button, then General tab, for:
- Transport Level Security: select Implicit
- SSL Method: select TLSv1
- Authentication: Auto
- Data port protection: Clear
- SSL mode: Unassigned
- Verify depth: 0
I left all the check boxes clear, and then email notifications worked fine
