Connect your Google email via SMTP

Created by Nicolas Wussler, Modified on Thu, 18 Aug 2022 at 08:02 AM by Igor Galic

Due to Google's recent privacy policy changesonly Business suite users are allowed to connect their Gmail accounts with SyncSpider.

However, that doesn't mean that "regular" users are unable to do so as well.

 

You can do so easily by using our Email integration module, and by following these steps:


Select Email from our list of Integrations, or by typing email in the search bar:

 

 

 

 

Enter the desired name and description (optional) and click "Next".

 

 

 

 

Select SMTP as the server type, and enter the following data:

 

 

 

• Host: smtp.gmail.com

• Port: 587

• Security: TLS

• Username: your user name or email
• Password: your password

• Authentication method: LOGIN

 

 If you've followed steps so far and still unable to create this email integration, please do the following:

1. Make sure that IMAP access is enabled by accessing Gmail settings, and then clicking on "Forwarding and POP/IMAP", as shown in the pictures below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 2. Head over to

• open google account: https://myaccount.google.com/

• go to Security (left sidebar)

• 2-step verification must be ON

•  Under "Signing in to Google," select App Passwords.

• Click on Select App >> Other, set name e.g. SyncSpyder

• Click on Generate btn

• Copy app password from the popup window and use in Custom Email config settings instead of user Gmail password



 Note: Do the following step only If you are still unable to integrate:

 

 Head over to this link: https://myaccount.google.com/security

and scroll down to the "Less secure app access" section, and turn it ON
