Question Error sending to devices by email

Hi All,

I'm trying to send a book to my Kindle and my Phone (Android Kindle reader app), and I know that my smtp settings are correct (using gmail), but when I test the settings I get:

Code:
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 128, in sendmail
  File "site-packages\calibre\utils\smtplib.py", line 308, in connect
  File "site-packages\calibre\utils\smtplib.py", line 783, in _get_socket
  File "socket.py", line 553, in create_connection
gaierror: [Errno 11003] getaddrinfo failed


Log:
Can anyone tell me exactly what 'getaddrinfo failed' means in this context please?

Many thanks.

Without knowing you OS

My WAG is: firewall blocking calibre.exe
