As we need to relay e-mails from a private network to gmail, we tried Mercury to replace an old free mail server we were using until now.
Everything was working good, until I closed and re-opened Mercury, authentification with gmail smtp server failed after that.
I identified the problem as Mercury unable to read the hash sign (#) correctly from mercury.ini.
We have such a sign in our gmail password (and can't easily change it as we have several sites already using it), and even if SMTP_Password has the right value when closing Mercury, when re-opening it the value is only read until this #.
Is there a known workaround? I tried escaping it (\#,##) but it is not working.
We'd really like to buy the license so that we can start it as a service, but right now we need to retype the password in the configuration screen each time after starting it.
Thanks in advance.
