Gmail mobile SMTP and POP3 Standard configuration instructions:
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|
|Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – requires TLS3 or SSL:||smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)|
|Port for TLS/STARTTLS:||587|
|Port for SSL:||465|
|Account Name:||your full email address (including @gmail.com)|
|Email Address:||your email address (email@example.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 POP settings in Gmail settings are what determine whether or not messages stay on the server, so this setting in your client won’t affect how Gmail handles your mail.
If your client does not support SMTP4 authentication, you won’t be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.
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).
POP: POP (Post office protocol) is a one-way download of your messages that allows you to access your mail with a mail program like Outlook Express or Apple Mail. POP only offers one-way communication, which means that actions you take in the mail program (like marking a message as read) won’t be synced to Gmail.
Domain: A domain is a name for an IP address and is more commonly recognized as a website or web address. For example, Google.com is a domain.
TLS: TLS (Transport Layer Security) is a way of changing data such as your username and password into code as it travels across the Internet, so that the data will be secure and private. With mail delivery, TLS begins with an unsecured connection to the mail servers, and then upgrades to a secure connection once information is sent.
SMTP: SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is a set of standard Internet procedures by which two email providers (ex. Gmail, Yahoo Mail), transfer email messages to one another’s mail servers.
