Questions:
Library Manager Email, I am having trouble getting the automated email feature to work. Note that I have also tried the Port setting at 25 and it didn't work either. I have also tried smtp.gmail.com in all lower case. Is this a Handy Library Manager problem or a Google problem or a laptop problem? What else do you recommend I try?
