Tip: Using your GMAIL account to send emails from the Community Edition


I would like to leave a tip on how to configuration the OutSystems email dispatcher in order to use your gmail account.

To do this configuration, do the following:
  1. Login to servicecenter with administrator permissions;
  2. Open the tab ADMINISTRATOR / Email and set the following data:
    • SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
    • SMTP Port: 587
    • Username: <your_gmail_address@gmail.com>
    • Password: <your gmail password>
    • Default Sender Email: <your_gmail_address@gmail.com>
    • Default Sender Name: <Your Name>
  3. Open the tab ADMINISTATOR / Server Configuration and make sure the DNS Name is correctly filled in (normally  localhost)

Kind Regards,

Hi Daniel,

Does the Campaign app use the default sender name and email above or does it use "reply-to email" and "Sender" fields in the app?

Otherwise whats the best way to set this up for internal use?

Calvin Terblanche
Hi Calvin, yes.

You can see in the Campaigns application model that the Campaign.From and Campaign.ReplyTo fields are used when sending the campaign emails.

These fields are set in the Campaign creation screen.

Is there similar configuration settings for Yahoo?
Hi Curt, 

you can try this ones:

  • SMTP Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • SMTP Port: 465
  • Username: <your_yahoo_address@gmail.com>
  • Password: <your yahoo password>
  • Default Sender Email: <your_yahoo_address@gmail.com>
  • Default Sender Name: <Your Name>
