Hi Guys,

So is that possible to use the SMTP from Google's servers? and if that is possible, could anyone kindly let me know how. Which should be the configuration?

So far, I've tried smtp.gmail.com:587 , with my User Name and Password, but with no success.

thanks a lot,

'SENDMAIL'

 

Or, install your own mail server on your PC:

Maybe something like this:

Thanks a lot, phy,

I've checked this this topic https://forum.mql4.com/3980 . And I don't think that make much sense. For Google does support SMTP. I use gmail via webmail and via thunderbird through smtp.

So, what is the problem with MT4? Time out?

Thanks again,

The SMTP function in MT4 does not include necessary options or interface software needed to access Gmail via SMTP


  1. Configuring other mail clients

    You can use the following information to configure POP with many mail clients. If you encounter difficulties, we suggest contacting your mail client's customer support department for further instructions -- we're unable to provide assistance configuring mail clients not in our supported POP client list.

    Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL: pop.gmail.com
    Use SSL: Yes
    Port: 995
    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS: smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
    Use Authentication: Yes
    Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
    Port: 465 or 587
    Account Name: your Gmail username (including @gmail.com)
    Email Address: your full Gmail email address (username@gmail.com)
    Password: your Gmail password

 

For MT4, here is a log from my personal mail server, which uses the standard SMTP port 25:

As Gmail's SMTP requires SSL, MT4 will not work with it. SMTP2Go provides an SMTP server that works with MT4. See the link below:

I'm sorry. I came to the link from google and the topic seduced me (although it's old) to reply.
