Steps for Gmail setup

  1. In Developer mode (, navigate to the "Mail Settings" tab.
  2. Click on the SMTP Server drop down box.
  3. Select "Use Gmail SMTP Server".
  4. Enter Gmail username in the username field (Only enter the information before @gmail.com).
  5. Enter your Gmail password.
  6. Enter a recipient email in the Send Daily Status Email to field, then click save.

    *Note* If the send test email does not work check that port 465 is open on your network and that your password is correct.

  7. Take a look at your Gmail account security settings and make sure that "Access for less secure apps" is enabled from https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps
