OK. Thanks. Then that would be fine.
Hmm, now that I think.. I married two issues together.. I have never been able to configure gnus to work.. it just times out when trying to fetch even news,gmane.org
and also I was never able to setup gmail using that (same timeout issue). Secondly I cannot send bug reports from within emacs as the outgoing email will be my work email (instead of the gmail email where I subscribe to all emacs ML). I have verified sendmail to work before. But I cannot use it as I cannot associate it with my gmail account. Sorry for that long answer but I don't know if ports 25 and 587 have anything to do with report-emacs-bug. But it probably has to do with my gnus issue.
