Question 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\", line 173, in test_email_settings
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\", line 105, in sendmail
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\", line 303, in connect
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\", line 281, in _get_socket
File "", 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!
