I’m not able to telnet to 587; I get a “connection refused”.

I anticipate this since all indications suggest gmail drops connections it feels are insecure or unsafe.

Can you connect to the manually from that machine? (for example using netcat or telnet)


You mentioned that you use postfix install as your MTA … you can then switch monit to use your postfix instead of gmail:


    set mailserver

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
