Gmail Server Settings

Enable IMAP in Gmail. Don’t forget to click Save Changes when you’re done. Configure your client to match the settings below:

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

Enable POP in Gmail. Don’t forget to click Save Changes when you’re done. Configure your client to match the settings below:

Incoming Mail (POP3) Server – requires SSL:
pop.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995

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

Account Name:
your full email address (including @gmail.com or @your_domain.com)

Email Address:
your email address (username@gmail.com or username@your_domain.com)

Password:
your Gmail password

Unless you’re using recent mode to download mail to multiple clients, make sure you’ve opted not to leave messages on the server. Your Gmail settings determine whether or not messages stay on the server, so this setting in your client won’t affect how Gmail handles your mail.

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 encryption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.
