You can use Google’s SMTP server to send automated e-mail through your Gmail account. This requires special settings, which are slightly different than typically found with other ISP’s.
- Enter smtp.gmail.com as the SMTP server
- The SMTP connection must be made over SSL, so you need to select the SSL check box
- In the Authentication section select the User name and password check box and enter your Gmail account’s user name (your full email address) and password in the text entry fields
- In Advanced Settings enter 456 in the Port number field.
Complete the remaining entries in the SMTP section as you would for all other ISP’s.
