Error message when I submit the form: 502 Bad Gateway

I set up my SMTP as Alena did in the video, but I get this error. What could be causing it? I am using gmail.

502 Bad Gateway The server returned an invalid or incomplete response.

Thank you

Perhaps you can share your code so that we can take a look?

Hi Kristen,

I had the same issue and couldn't find any issue in my code. I guess it's a workspace thing, because i tried the exact same code on the localhost server and it did work perfectly well and it most likely works for you as well :)
