Gmail SMTP configuration in ActiveXperts Network Monitor

In ActiveXperts, you can send out e-mail alerts through virtually any SMTP server.
To send out e-mail alerts through Google's Gmail SMTP server, make sure you:

Step 1: Allow 3rd party application in Google, to enabled ActiveXperts to use the Gmail SMTP services.

If you have not enabled Gmail for 3rd party applications yet, you should follow the instructions in our document: Allow ActiveXperts to use Google's Gmail mail services through SMTP.
If you don't allow 3rd party applications, you'll end up with ActiveXperts error 37411: "Authorization failed; Make sure that 3rd party applications are allowed.". See also this screenshot.

Step 2: Configure Gmail SMTP configuration in ActiveXperts Network Monitor

In the 'Notification Settings' property page, configure the following settings:

  • In the SMTP host field, type: smtp.gmail.com
  • In the SMTP port field, type: 465
  • In the Connection Security selection box, select SSL/TLS
  • Enable the Server requires Authentication checkbox, and enter a login with the '@gmail.com' suffix (e.g. activexperts-labs@gmail.com)
  • In the Sender's e-mail field, type the Gmail account exactly as specified in the Authentication field above (e.g. activexperts-labs@gmail.com)
