SMTP Setup from a Local Confluence Instance

Hi, I think this is a dumb question.

I'm assuming that I can't set up emailing from my local test instance to test out notifications etc.

I use Google Apps and I have tried the options on here but when trying to send a test email, the port 587 produced an error "Must issue a STARTTLS command first" the port 465 just did nothing (seemed to hang).

I don't think I can use the port 25 option with the SPF record as I don't have a static IP address (and work from many locations).

So, am I right in thinking this is just not possible?

Perhaps this article might help, though it's specific to jira

Oh cool, that looks like it will definitely help. But now I will have to work out how to do OpenSSL on the mac.

that link gave good instructions, but it didn't work for me.
