To use email notification with the VS7100, please use an external SMTP server that uses port 25 and doesn't support SSL authentication. VS7100 does not support SSL authentication and the SMTP port 25 is unable to be changed. Gmail uses port 465 and SSL authentication.
You can enter a Gmail address into the recipient email address, but cannot use Gmail to send email with the VS7100.
Some of our newer products do support SSL authentication and the ability to change the SMTP port. (e.g. IP7161, VS8102, etc.)
Thank you for your support of Vivotek products.
