Using Gmail for Email Sending

To send outgoing email with Gmail:
SMTP Server:
Username:   <GMail email address>
Password:  <Gmail user password>
Use Advanced Settings to set SMTP Server Port:  Yes
SMTP Server Port: 587
Email Server requires SSL and/or TLS Mode: Yes
SSL/TLS Start Mode: Explicit
Important:  Gmail has changed its security protocols to allow third party applications to send email.  Your GMail account will need to enable the Less Secure Apps option in the Sign-in & security options under your Google account's preferences.  If you do not wish to do so, you will need to use a different email provider to send outbound emails from BLS.
