If you want to use an email client like Thunderbird or Outlook to send email messages from your Gmail address, you must enter the correct Gmail SMTP settings. While some email clients do this automatically as soon as you enter your login credentials, others require you to enter the information manually. In this article, we’ll give you the Gmail SMTP settings you’ll need to send email from your favorite email client.
The process is easy, takes less than a minute and does not require any technical knowledge. All you have to know is the correct settings, which you can check below.

Once you add your account to an email client of your choice, the first thing you’ll be asked to do is enter your email address and password. After that, the Gmail SMTP settings should appear on your screen. When they do, just enter the information you see above.
If you don’t see them, you’ll need to open your account settings and do some research. They’re in a different place depending on the email client you’re using, but they should be relatively easy to find.
Please note that Gmail’s SMTP settings have a sending limit, which has been set to prevent spam. You can only send a total of 500 emails per day, which is probably more than enough for the average user.
