I've got Outlook setup with POP *1 to download my Gmail. It works fine when I'm off VPN.
However when I'm on VPN it gives me an error when I try to send or receive:
Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) email server.
I'm on a Windows 7 laptop with Office 2007. IE is the browser our company systems are compatible with, and the proxy is set via a script *2. I asked our Service Desk for help, and they say they do not support what I'm doing, but our customer is sending datafiles larger than Outlook will allow. Gmail works, and from testing I've done it seems the macros I've got in Outlook will work just fine.
Now if I can only get mail to download while I'm on VPN. Help, please?
*1 - When I tried IMAP first, it wasn't working - will try that again, but wonder if the problem with the proxy will be the same.
*2 - I saved a copy of the script to a local file, pointed the proxy there, and tried adding lines for ◦smtp.gmail.com and ◦pop.gmail.com, but it did not work.)
