Clear instructions on how to get setup gmail email in MQL5 needed

 
I’ve seen a number of posts on setting up email here but none of them seems to give clear guidelines on the process. I am not sure exactly what each field in Options>Email should contain and how a simple email should be composed programmatically.

I would really appreciate some help.
 

Old but it should still be useful.

You could also have to setup up the server side (provider side).

Of course you are wrong. That's funny to see how people are saying me I am dreaming or I don't know what I am talking about when they are wrong

1° You have to configure gmail/gmx to allow external application.

2° Configure your MT4


And by the way it was ALWAYS working (except maybe on some build for a short time).

Do I need to be logged into MQL5 community for this to work? Also is the SMTP Password suppose to be my gmail password?

No.

No. For gmail it's more complicated as a 2 steps verification is now mandatory. See this post with a video explaining how to do.
