Gmail's Incoming and Outgoing Servers

September 2017

Google's Gmail service offers email client access for retrieving and sending emails without having to log into your account online. For security reasons, the email server uses a POP3 protocol, so ensure that your email client supports an encrypted SSL connection before proceeding with setup.

Incoming and Outgoing Servers for Gmail

Setting up Gmail on a mail client will require the following incoming (IMAP) and outgoing (SMTP) mail servers:


Gmail's Incoming Mail Server (POP3): pop.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 995).

Gmail's Outgoing Mail Server will use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP. You can also use smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465).
