Sending email with attachment problem

Hi all,

I am practicing Academy lesson 11 practice 2 but I am sending email with attachment in pdf from my google mail to outlook which I have problem. However, the comment out part in my workflow is fine for using outlook mail message.

The account and password in the Email section are my google account but I have remove it in the workflow attached.

For the Host section, I have tried 465, 587 and 2525 ports while the server is “” since I am using google with smtp.

The error for using 465 and 587 is shown as below:

While the error for using 2525 is as below:
2525 timeout

Here is my workflow:
L11P2.xaml (8.4 KB)

I think the problem is due to the port configuration. Can anyone advise me on this?

Thank you.
