hi all
I want to use Google’s SMTP server. I have a Gmail account that I’ve been using for few years now, but I don’t know how to set up the SMTP. Also can I use my old Gmail account or do I need to open a new one?
Appreciate your support.

You don’t have to register a new account on Gmail, you can use your existing account.
You need to configure your mail client to use GMail for outgoing mail server.
•Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.gmail.com
•Use Authentication: Yes
•Use Secure Connection: Yes
•Username: your GMail account
•Password: your GMail password
•Port: 465 or 587
