Using gmail as my SMTP server

Hey
I'm having a bit of trouble using Gmail as my SMTP server. I'm using jforum 2.1.8 and in the admin console I have the following settings:

Email Address to use as "sender" me@gmail.com
SMTP Server smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port [See below]
SMTP Server requires authorization? True
Requires SSL? False
SMTP username ( only if using authorization ) me@gmail.com
SMTP password ( only if using authorization ) mypassword
Send a test email E-mail: me@yahoo.com

If I set the port to be 25 I get this error:

MUST ISSUE A STARTTLS command first

So then I tried port 465 and it just hangs....

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

So that just means that the ssl connection is not established, right?
