    What's the error message? I am assuming the client receives mail successfully?

    I have the same intermittent problems. Sometimes it asks for a password sometimes not. I think it has to do with our ISP using dynamic IP addresses... Or maybe the network traffic of Google is just too much.

    No problems here. I've been using their SMTP in various hotspots as well.

    I have "on-and-off" experiences as well. I assume that it's just the traffic that the Google mail servers get. When downloading of POP mail is agonizingly slow, I usually have problems sending via their SMTP server.

    I just use the SMTP server of my other account to send out the mail.

    now im able to send via SMTP, hope this will be ok for the whole day. i think it's not the ISP since i used my GPRS and the land line based provider with the same error.
