Hi alan,

Nothing changed here. When sending through gmail's servers, use:

Server: smtp.gmail.com
From: <your gmail address>
Authentication: ON
Username: <your gmail address>
Password: <see comments below>
Port: Default
Secure Connection: Checked with TLS

Password comments: With Gmail you have 2 options for using your password:

1) Turn on 2 step verification, and create an "App Password". Use this app password in FM.
2) Leave off 2 step verification, and enable "Less Secure Apps" in your Gmail account. In this case you would use your Gmail password in FM.

Option #1 is preferred and more secure, but both will work.
Thanks,
Mark
