To grant access to 3CX to sending email via a Gmail account:
Once you have configured Gmail details in 3CX Management Console, you should also configure the same credentials in our application E-mail settings. To configure email settings in our application, follow the steps below:
1. Open the application, and go to “Email Settings” Under Mail Server: Enter the Server/smarthost, IP address or Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of your email server.
For Gmail:- smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: Default port number is 25. For Gmail / Google Apps use Port 587 (recommended) or port 25
Check this option if your mail server requires authentication to relay emails. Enter the sign-in credentials of the hosted mailbox being used in 3CX Management Console>Settings>Email.
SSL / TLS: Select this option if your mail server requires a secure connection -- Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) to relay email. Gmail, Google Apps, and Office 365 require a secure connection.
Tip: Sending mail within your domain may not require authentication, while sending outside your domain may require authentication.
