Gmail's Incoming and Outgoing Servers

Ask a question
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).
