Use GMail as your SMTP server

If you have Google Apps for Domain/G Suite or GMail and would like to use GMail as your SMTP server, click Settings -> Site Settings then use the following information:

  • Server name: smtp.gmail.com
  • Port: 465 (SSL) or 587 (TLS)
  • Username and password must be specified


If GMail still rejects the authentication, you may need to enable the following settings from your Google Account until SCHLIX CMS implements OAuth 2 authentaction specifically for GMail. Other email providers do not need to have this mechanism.
