GMail SMTP Server (Google) - How to Configure & Send Emails for Free?

Google’s Gmail SMTP server is a free SMTP service which anyone who has a Gmail account can use to send emails. You can use it with personal emails, or even with your website if you are sending emails for things such as contact forms, newsletter blasts, or notifications.

To use the GMail SMTP server, the following settings are needed for your outgoing emails:

  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.gmail.com
  • Use Authentication: Yes
  • Use Secure Connection: Yes (TLS or SSL depending on your mail client/website SMTP plugin)
  • Username: your Gmail account (e.g. user@gmail.com)
  • Password: your Gmail password
  • Port: 465 (SSL required) or 587 (TLS required)

The same settings can be used by different apps and devices. Although the exact configuration location may differ, if you use the settings above, you should be able to send emails through the GMail SMTP server for free without issues.
