Configuring Gmail with Evanced as an SMTP service

This is for INSTALLED customers only. Hosted customers should contact Support for questions about how to set up email.

To setup Gmail for use with Events and Room Reserve, you need to first enable POP in Gmail. See instructions here: https://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=13273

Then go to the Email Server Settings configuration page in Events or Room Reserve and enter the following items:

  • SMTP Address: smtp.gmail.com
  • Select "Basic Authentication"
  • Username: [Your Gmail Address]
  • Password: [Your Gmail Account Password]
For Summer Reader (FOLLOW THE SETTINGS FOR EVENTS AND ROOMS FIRST, THEN MOVE ON TO THESE!)
  • SMTP Port: 465
  • Use SSL Connection: Enable
For Event Calendar and Room Reserve (V6)
  • Contact us and we'll setup the port number (465) and enable
    SSL. These settings are only available from the factory-side at the
    moment for Events and Room Reserve.
For Event Calendar and Room Reserve (V7)
  • Outgoing SMTP Server Port: 465
  • Outgoing SMTP Use SSL: Yes

One thing to remember is that there is a limit to the number of emails that can be sent per day
with Gmail. If that is a potential problem then you might want to
subscribe to Google Apps (non-profit edition). This limit is 2000 emails
sent/day.
