I have an application which has been happily sending emails using a TIdSMTP
component.
Due to a change of contract I need to use a different ISP outgoing SMTP
server.
When it tries to connect it gets an error message "must issue a STARTTLS
command first".
Presumably the new ISP (googlemail) has different security or authentication
settings, but I can't fighure out how to get round this from the
documentation.
Any helpful suggestions very welcome
