Q1. All looks to be OK.You're sure the gateway IP in the camera is set to the router/gateway IP?
Is your router providing/passing/allowing DNS to the cameras? When I set up firewall rules to keep the cameras from phoning home, a side effect was also blocking their DNS requests. Without being able to get DNS lookup, they could not resolve the domain name in the camera, e.g. smtp.gmail.com, to the necessary IP address so email sending failed.
I have set up no port forwarding, blocking etc. I have disabled upnp on the camera and router. Maybe this is the issue?
