Mail server config in mds.ini file | MDM 5.5 SP06


Hi , I am trying to send a email notification through an MDM workflow during an approval process but in the workflow log it shows that it is not able to retrieve the mail server information . I have the mial id's attached to the users individually in the console . I am trying this through a Microsoft exchange server (company server ) and I have the server name entered in the "Mail Server "entry in the mds.ini file . I changed the "Mail SMTP Timeout" entry to 10 so that it may enough time to get the information from the mail server . But still no luck .

- Do I need some specific mail server for this configuration ? SMTP /POP3/ Microsoft exchange server ???

- Is there some specific port used by MDM for sending out a mail and if yes then is there a configuration required in my mail server for the same ?

- If I wanted to use my GMAIL id to test this , can I do that and if yes then how ? I would be interested in the exact entry for the mail server that I would use to test this .

Would really appreciate your help !!
