Hi Matt,

If I recall reading somewhere there is an issue with Gmail and Monit using TLS. Use SSL instead:

set mailserver port 465 username "username" password "password" using sslv3

This is what we use.

Good afternoon, everyone.


I am running a fresh postfix install as my MTA on my local Ubuntu 11.10 machine, and I’m using Monit.  I set the following parameters in /etc/monit/monitrc:


set mailserver port 587 username “<my username>” password “<my password>” using tlsv1 with timeout 30 seconds


however, in monit.log, this is the response:


[EST Feb  2 18:38:10] error            : Cannot open a connection to the mailserver ‘’ – Transport endpoint is not connected
