Hi Ingy,

Could you try with another email address?? I had the same issue some time ago and it was because Gmail security preferences are too stregth. So I just simply used another email address (i.e. yahoo) and then it worked. My suggestion is that you try with another mail provider and see what happens.

Hope it helps.

Hello Ingy,

Gmail uses SSL and Qlikview doesn't. You won't be able to use any email service which uses SSL. You can create another account in any other provider which don't use encryption.

If you must use Gmail, then you must use a proxy such us Stunnel or hMailServer.
