Canon maxify 5170 cannot connect to mail server error



I have setup the mail server using the remote UI from my pc and tested the mail server connection to be successful on my web browser. I am using gmail as my mail server. However, when I try to scan document to email it from device directly, it throws an error code 3418 which states that the machine failed to connect to mail server. I have setup properly the mail server from my web browser thru remote UI. Can anyone help me out with this issue. Thanks.

You may have to contact your email provider to see if there are any settings on their end that need to be adjusted.  Some webmail providers do not automatically allow access through certain API's or mobile devices.
