Does the Conext Combox support GMail, Hotmail, AOL or Yahoo mail for email?

Issue:

Does the Conext Combox support GMAIL, Hotmail, AOL or Yahoo for email?

Environment:

Internet-connected Conext Combox

Resolution:

Not directly. You must use the SMTP email server provided by your internet service provider,  or a third party SMTP server, not the one provided by Gmail/Yahoo/Hotmail. You should be able to use that SMTP server to then send emails to your GMAIL, Hotmail, or Yahoo mail account. Please contact your internet or email provider for details.

Cause:

GMAIL, Hotmail, and Yahoo mail require SSL/TLS encryption for access to their SMTP server. The combox does not support this.
