In SERPed, it is possible to connect a 3rd Party SMTP Mailer to handle outgoing emails for tools that allow you to send emails, like Mobile Prospector and Advanced Prospector. Here is how to connect your Gmail account and Google Workspace account to SERPed.

Click on your profile picture at the top right hand side of the page and select Integrations. Then, select the 3RD PARTY SMTP MAILER tab, fill in the required information and click "Save Details".



For a personal Gmail account, enter the following details:

SMTP Host: smtp.gmail.com
Username: your Gmail account (e.g. user@gmail.com)
Password: your Gmail password
Port: 587 (if it doesn't work, try 2525)

For a Google Workspace account, formerly known as G Suite (usually your work email address), make sure you first enable permissions and do the necessary setup and configuration in your Google Workspace's administrator account before trying to connect. You can read more about how to do this here.

The following setting are for Google Workspace outgoing emails:

SMTP Host: smtp-relay.gmail.com (this is different from personal Gmail account)
Username: your Gmail account (e.g. user@work.com)
Password: your Gmail password
Port: 587 (if it doesn't work, try 2525)

If you find that you are unable to connect to your Gmail SMTP Mailer, please check the settings in your Gmail account and turn "Less Secure Apps Access" on. You can read about how to do this here. Note that you may need to wait a few hours after enabling this for Google to update the change.



If you want, you can create a separate Google App password specifically for SERPed. You can read more about how to do this here.

You can also connect other 3rd Party SMTP Mailers such as SendGrid, MailJet, SendGrid, SendinBlue, Amazon SES, MailGun, PostMark and SocketLabs.
