How to configure BCM to use a gmail email address?
Gmail has switched to TLS encryption only, which will prevent BCM to send/receive emails if you don't lower the security on your gmail account first.
2) Configure the mail server into the BCM Console:
- Go to Global Settings > System Variables
use smtp.gmail.com as the server name
- Use port 587
- Use tlsv1
- Enable ‘Force Authentication':
Note: More information from google on the available settings here.
