Hello,

I'm trying to set up my Gmail account so it sends as name@domain.com versus "Sent By" or "on Behalf of". I keep trying, one problem might be that I can't figure out the password (another question in itself) but get this error message:

Authentication failed. Please check your username/password. [Server response: 535 5.7.0 Error: authentication failed: authentication failure code(535) ]

I'm setting webfaction.com as the SMTP server, trying every port, username and password connection I can think of but no luck. Where can I find answers?

Thanks in advance.

Our SMTP server is "smtp.webfaction.com", not "webfaction.com".

More information is available here: Configuring Other Mail Clients

Hope that helps!

Yes, sorry - typo. That's what I've been using "smtp.webfaction.com".
