Gmail server settings

Below are there recommended email server settings (SMTP mail server) for Gmail users.

Some G Suite (formerly Google Apps) customers may need to follow additional steps to "allow less secure apps" to appear in their security settings. Please see our troubleshooting article to Authorize Gmail
  1. From your Method dashboard, click the Gear icon and choose Preferences > Email.
  2. Scroll down to Company Settings.
  3. Use the following settings:
    • For Email Server use "smtp.gmail.com".
    • Fill in your Email Use Name, typically your full email address.
    • Enter your Email Password, the same password used to access your email.
    • Specify 587 for the Port.
    • Ensure SSL is checked. This is a security feature common for email servers.
    • When done, click Save.
    • Click Test Company Email Server Settings and wait for on-screen confirmation.
If you set up your email server to use Gmail, email sent from Method will show up in your sent email box.
