Try this, in the email configuration options in Getting Started Wizard:
1. Select the 'advanced options' expansion.
2. Check the 'Use different credentials for SMTP' checkbox.
3. leave the credentials empty.
This should setup the smtp connection without creds. This may or may not fix the problem.
Thanks a lot Chris, this worked!
In my opinion I think that the GUI should be more clear in this section.
I don't think that it makes sense to specify to use credentials when no login is actually required.
Great !!! ha ha ha ha... it really works
