I am trying to send notification mails using monit v5.1. I am using Google Apps as a mailserver, so I wanted to use their infrastructure for outgoing mails.
I have entered the following information in my /etc/monit/monitrc:
set mailserver smtp.gmail.com PORT 587 USERNAME "email@example.com" PASSWORT "mypassword" using TLSV1 with timeout 30 seconds
When monit tries to send out mails, I get the following error:
Sendmail error: 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first.
How can I tell monit to use STARTTLS? How can I send alert mails via monit using the Google Apps mailserver?
