Shahawas, we need more information. What error are you getting? Who is your email provider? Are you using POP3, IMAP or some other email protocol?
i am getting this massage...The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server smtp.gmail.com timed out.
OK, we're making progress! Has this set up ever worked before? Do you receive messages OK?

In that case, double check your SMTP settings. My guess is that you either forgot to enable SSL or to set the port to 993.

Just occurred to me your firewall may also cause be an issue. If the items mentioned below do not solve the problem, disable your firewall and try again. If this resolves the problem, you'll need to configure your firewall to let this traffic through.
