    since i cannot upload screenshots , here is the audit log.

    as you can see I enabled IP6 , disabled ipv6 visibility then disabled ip6 traffic , then was able to successfully test mail settings

    and now i am getting emails to gmail account. Dont ask me why this worked, I have no idea. but this is all i did to make it work.

    Is the gmail account configured for 'Less secure apps'?

    Yes which is why thunderbird and k9mail work

    Might be a bug in Gen7. I'd change the account password to something relatively simple and try again (a.k.a. basic troubleshooting). Some parts of Gen7 do not like special characters in fields. If you don't succeed open a ticket with support.

    Hi @MPERU99

    You may have to add SonicWALL to the relay service under the google account which you trying to send from/configure in SonicWALL firewall.
