Tutorial

First you need to install the SMTP Mailer Module in order to use it.

To do so login to the Dolphin Pro Administration Dashboard and go to:
Modules
-Add & Manage

Find the "Not Installed Modules" section in the center of the page. Scroll down until you find the SMTP Mailer. Check the box next to it. Then, scroll down a little more and click the "Install" button.

Once it is installed you will find it in the "Modules" menu section on the left hand column of the Administration Dashboard.

Click on the SMTP Mailer Module to configure it for the particular email address you intend to use.

For Gmail you can use either port 465/SSL or port 587/TLS.

For Gmail SSL:

    Enable SMTP Mailer: Checked
    SMTP Authentication: Checked
    SMTP Username: your Gmail email
    SMTP Password: your Gmail password
    SMTP Server Name: smtp.gmail.com
    SMTP Server Port: 465
    Secure Connection: SSL
    'From' Name: Your site name
    Override Default Sender: your Gmail email
    Allow self-signed certificates: Unchecked



Change values in bold to your own.

Please note some limits apply on how many emails can be sent per certain period of time.

If you have "Sign-in attempt was blocked" error, then go to Google security settings page and allow "Less secure app access" option.
