Configure Alternate Email Settings for Gmail

Customers who use Gmail as their primary email address can use Gmail as an alternate mail server.  The configuration parameters are as follows:

SMTP Mail Server:  smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port:  587
Use SMTP Authentication:  checked
Username & Password:  valid Gmail account

If these settings are not correct, you’ll get a Proxy Error (SS2) when you click Send Test Email Message.

Access to configuring the email server is a higher level security feature and isn’t available to end users, so please contact your LeadMaster representative and they’ll do the configuration for you.

By default, all outbound email message sent from LeadMaster are sent via a LeadMaster email server. These messages include the following:

1. Individual email messages sent to a contact (from the “Sales Update”, “Edit Profile” and “View Profile” pages)
2. Bulk email messages sent from the “Search Results”, “Accounts” and “Contacts” pages
3. Email messages sent via the “E-Marketing” feature
4. Notification email messages sent as a result of assigning a lead or requesting an update to a lead or assigning a callback
5. Email messages sent as actions for workflow automation processes

To configure an alternate email server for sending outbound email messages from LeadMaster:

1. From ‘Administration’ / ‘Alternate Outgoing Email Server Settings’, configure the settings for the email server.

Please note:

a. The ‘Default “From Name”’ and ‘Default “From Address”’ fields are required but in most all cases overridden.
b. The ‘SMTP Mail Server’, ‘SMTP Port’, ‘Uses SMTP Authentication’, ‘Username’ and ‘Password’ field values depend on the requirements of the outbound email server.
c. Once configured, you can test the settings by sending an email message to yourself. Any errors reported by the test will be displayed.
d. The ‘Use this account for outgoing email messages’ field must be checked in order for LeadMaster to use the alternate email server for sending outbound email messages.

When an alternate outgoing email server is configured, LeadMaster will attempt to use that email server for sending email messages. If there is an error sending an outbound email message using the alternate outgoing email server, LeadMaster will default to using its own email server to send the email message. Any errors encountered using the alternate outbound email server will be logged.
