Gmail email set up with Calibre
I have gone through all the steps as far as i know. I am using a gmail account. But every time I try test the email I get this fault coming up....
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\wizard\send_email.py", line 173, in test_email_settings
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\smtp.py", line 105, in sendmail
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\smtplib.py", line 303, in connect
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\smtplib.py", line 281, in _get_socket
File "socket.py", line 571, in create_connection
error: [Errno 10013] An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions
I dont know what to do. Is there a port I should be using other than the default 587?
Should I turn off all my firewalls?
I have already went into manage my kindle and added my email to the accepted list.
At a real loss, if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated!

Did you use your entire gmail address for the username? i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org
You will have it twice, once on the line asking for your email, and then below it on the line for username. I would check to show password to ensure that is also typed correctly. You can uncheck it after you verify it is correct.
