Gmail's Incoming and Outgoing Servers

Most people check their Gmail directly via their browser or the app on their phones, however Google also makes it possible to use Gmail with a third party external program such as Outlook, iMail or Windows Live Mail. For security reasons, the email server uses a POP3 protocol, so ensure that your email program supports an encrypted SSL connection before proceeding with the setup of the incoming and outgoing servers. Read on for all the details on how to do this.


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).
