Email server settings for Gmail users

Updated over a week ago

Normally, Method will send out email for you. However, if you'd prefer to have Method use your Gmail Server to send email, this article will outline the email server settings (SMTP mail server) for Gmail users.

Note: If you set up your email server to use Gmail, email sent from Method will show up in your sent email box.
