Configuring Gmail using Outlook or another mail client


Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server – requires SSL: imap.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – requires TLS: smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587

Account Name: your full email address (including @gmail.com) Google Apps users, please enter username@your_domain.com

Email Address: your full Gmail email address (username@gmail.com) Google Apps users, please enter username@your_domain.com

Password: your full Gmail password

Please note that if your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won’t be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.

Also, if you’re having trouble sending mail but you’ve confirmed that encyrption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.
