IMAP also uses SMTP and gives the same error on trying it.

I tried the other items in my red box. 2 & 3 failed.

Gmail POP/IMAP & SMTP requires SSL/TLS so if you aint got it setup in your client then you are never going to connect.

If any one reading this thread uses Avast, Outpost FW & WLM with an account requiring SSL try this:-
1 open WLM Account Propertes Advanced tab & disable both SSL. Close WLM.
2 Set Avast Mail Shield to scan ALL.
3 reopen WLM and wait till the error message appears. Now send a test Email, (might work/might not). Watch the Out Box.
4 Close WLM, then Shut Down Outpost FW and enable Windows FW
5 Now WLM does work.
