TIP: Gmail SMTP - 2-step verification

Feb 28 '13 at 05:56

If you use the Chilkat Email component and want to send emails using GMail's SMTP server, you need these settings:

SMTP Server:
Port:         465
Userid:       your gmail username (without
Password:     your gmail password (see below if you enabled 2-step verification)
SSL:          enable this option
TLS:          disable

However, if the gmail account has "2-step verification" enabled, you must have an application specific password to be able to send emails.


Thanks Gert!
