Hey there Skyleaders,
In this tutorial, we will show you how to connect your Gmail with Skylead.
The first step that you need to take is on your Gmail account, and it can be found under the Settings --> All settings:
Then go to Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
You need to check 2 options:
- Enable POP for all email
- Enable IMAP
Once you do that, you need to click on "Save changes," and the first step is complete! ✔️
Turn on your 2-step verification. (If you are an admin of Google Workspace, follow the instructions here)
The next step is to generate the password if 2-step verification is on, and to do that, follow these steps:
- Go to your Google Account security settings (myaccount.google.com/u/S/security)
- Click on the App passwords
- Select app - Mail
- Select device - Other
- Type the name of the service - Skylead
- Click on the Generate button.
- Copy the password provided when setting up the SMTP and IMAP server instead of your standard password
! If 2-factor authentication is not turned on, please turn it on and follow the steps above.
Last but not least, you need to go back to your Skylead account and insert all of the necessary information:
- The username is your email address
- Password is the one that you generated
- SMTP and IMAP IP addresses and port numbers are pre-written in the form
