I get the following error when trying to send an email:

Task 'gmail - sending' reported error (0x80070057) 'Could not complete the operation.  One or more parameter values are not valid.'

I've tried switching the SMTP mail server, but I still get the exact same error.

    Hi lwinkenb,

    Have you set GMAIL account in your Outlook ?
    If yes , can you receive emails fine ?

    GMAIL uses SMTP port 465 to send outgoing mails. Make sure that port is not blocked by your firewall/network.

    Is your GMAIL account working going to ?
