Hi,

I m using MetaTrader4 Administrator to send reports to my clients. However, i couldn't send reports to "Gmail" accounts. It gives an errror message.

Is there any way to send reports to "Gmail" account. How should fill in the "smtpservername" for "Gmail" account.

Thanks in advance,

Balaji G

Hi Balaji,

Google this "How to set SMTP server with Vista", or 7 or XP or whatever your OS is. If you're not satisfied with Google, you can consult Yahoo! and Bing for second and third opinions.

Gmail, yahoo and most email providers all require a secure connection which mt4 can not do.

  1. set up a smtp server on your machine e.g. mt4 -(unsecure)> server -(secure)> email.

  2. IBFX solution gmx.com as a forwarder IBFX - How to Setup the Email and Text function in MT4 - YouTube (I haven't tried it, please report if it works.)

I tried using gmx and it works.(I didn't use the above linke, so not sure how it works). However, the problem is only 26 mails are sent for an hour. For rest of the accounts, i get an error message. So, is there any other way to fix this? ie. send reports from MT4

It works with gmail as well, not only gmx as shown in the video, as long as you don't forget to add the port number as shown:

server confirguration for alerts

Gmail and gmx must be configured (on their site,) to allow external application.
