    GMAIL Account Setup

    by COBS Tech Support » Fri May 01, 2020 3:16 pm

    Please note that GMAIL access is a moving target. These settings and guides work as per the date of this bulletin but may not be applicable in the future.

    SMTP Host (or IP): smtp.googlemail.com
    SMTP Authentication: Unticked
    SMTP Account: Your gmail account. E.g., johnsmith@gmail.com
    SMTP Password: Your GMAIL password
    Your Email Address: Same as SMTP Account.
    Reply To: Same as SMTP Account.
    Port: 587
    SSL: Ticked

    Furthermore, you must ensure that 2 Step Verification is deactivated. Within your GMAIL account, open account settings, go to 'Accounts & Import' and then find and click on Other Google Account Settings.

    Finally, also locate Less Secure Apps and ensure this is set to 'On'.

    If email is still rejected, reset your GMAIL password and try again.
