The SMTPsettings of Gmail arevery important and whoever use it should know them. Let’s see why.
Gmail isa fantastic webmail application, but some people find it handier to access theirown inbox from a mail client like Mozilla Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook andmanage their account on the desktop. But to do that it’s necessary to setup Gmail’s own SMTP server to deliver your messages.
Luckily,that’s easy. First, open the mail software’s configuration panel:
- Gmail SMTP server name: smtp.gmail.com
- Gmail SMTP username: your Gmail address
- Gmail SMTP password: your password
- Gmail SMTP port: 25 or 465
