Thank you for your response, I know that I should follow these steps, but I do not know what parameters I need to use, for example, port of smtp.gmail.com and tsl or ssl.

Thanks.

You see, I have no possibility to use outlook or such kind of mail clients.

If possible, let me know how to set up my mybb forum to my gmil.com account.

I believe that those errors you are receiving whether they are temporary or permanent errors, it most likely means that the user's email has been deleted or deactivated.
