 +======Sending mail through your Gmail account======
  
 +According to [[https://​support.google.com/​mail/​bin/​static.py?​hl=en&​ts=1668960&​page=ts.cs&​rd=1|Google]],​ the settings for sending mail through Gmail are:
 +
 +|Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL: |smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)\\ Use Authentication:​ Yes\\ Port for TLS/​STARTTLS:​ 587\\ Port for SSL: 465 |
 +
 +=====Use TLS=====
 +This is the way we recommend as it uses current Internet standards.
 +
 +  - Go to **Mail Connectors -> Mail Senders** and edit your mail sender. ​
 +  - In the **Mail Send Method** box, make sure you have chosen **Send via an SMTP Relay (Smarthost)**.
 +  - Go to the **Settings** tab
 +  - In the **SMTP Relay Servers** box, type ''​smtp.gmail.com:​587''​
 +  - Tick the **This server requires SMTP authentication** box. 
 +  - In the **SMTP Username/​Password** boxes type your Gmail username & password.
 +  - In the **Session Encryption** box, choose either **TLS if available** or **TLS**
 +  - Press **Submit**
 +
