Please note this can fix alot of bounce or sending issues, however if you have troubles setting this up we cant support this. (use at own risk)
We cant support the use of gmail or outlook as they are both products supplied by another provider.
Go to https://accounts.google.com/ and create an account.
Please note it doesn’t matter what you enter in the account created.
Once your account has been created, log into the account.

Change your outgoing mailserver to 'smtp.gmail.com'
In outlook, click more settings and change the outgoing server to ‘login using’ and use the gmail account you just setup.
