Generator With Email Capability Set Up Problem Need Help

Attempting to set up my standby power generator to be able to send email over my Verizon account. I can see and manipulate this networked device over my wireless home network since it has a MAC address and IP. The generator also has the capability to send an email when something about it changes; however, I have not been able to get this to work. I have tried all of the SMTP Outgoing mail nomenclature I have found on the Verizon sites, including the info that is presently working on my iPad on the same network. I have also tried changing ports to 110 and 465. Can anyone tell me if there is something I'm missing?

Obviously you missed a setting or your generator doesn't support it, as others have gotten all sorts of devices including generators to work.

To send email mimimum  suggested

your id and password

authentication required and clear password

SSL and port 465
