Standard configuration instructions:
|Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL:||pop.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
|Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL:||smtp.gmail.com
Use Authentication: Yes
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
Port for SSL: 465
|Server timeouts||Greater than 1 minute, we recommend 5|
|Full Name or Display Name:||[your name]|
|Account Name or User Name:||your full email address (including @gmail.com or @your_domain.com)|
|Email Address:||your email address (username [AT] gmail [DOT] com or username [AT] your_domain [DOT] com)|

If your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.
If you're having trouble sending mail but you've confirmed that encryption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port (465 or 587).
