If you are facing difficulties configuring your gmail with blogengine.net then couple of points below might be helpful
(1) Check you email account for email titled "Suspicious sign in prevented"
if you have such an email then choose the option
If this was you, and you want to give this application access to your account, complete the troubleshooting steps listed athttp://support.google.com/mail?p=client_login
Then unblock the IP of your site with the link below
If you're still having problems, visithttp://www.google.com/accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha
You will have 10 minutes to try sending emails from your site and if you do your site will be unblocked.
(2) This one is tricky and wasted my half an hour at least. If you are entering your email settings for the first time and you click "test settings" before "Save settings" then you settings on screen will not be picked up.
So save the settings first and then test.
