Last week I experienced a series of connection failures while using Gmail as a client to send emails via the BU Mail account and server. It seemed that the SMTP server I had been using, net16.hkbu.edu.hk, was not working any more. I googled the problem and found the new SMTP server
- server address: smtps01.hkbu.edu.hk
- port: 465
- secure connection option: SSL
It has been working well so far. Please comment should you find problems using this server. The original file I found documenting this mail protocol setting is here.
