Using Gmail as your SMTP Server

If you are having an email account with Gmail, you can use that as your SMTP Server.

To configure your Gmail account as an SMTP server, follow the steps below:

  • Select File > New > SMTP Server from the main menu
  • Server Name: Gmail (this can be any name up to 100 characters – for your reference only)
  • Host Address:
  • User Name:
  • Password: Your Gmail password
  • SMTP Port: 465 (if this does not work, change it to 587)
  • Check the box "This server requires secure connection (SSL)"
  • Click on the Add button
