If you have a working Gmail account you can use Gmail as your mail server by setting it in the global configuration.

On the server tab set the following:

  • Mailer: SMTP
  • Set the next three lines with your information, leave your path untouched unless you are sure it needs to change for some reason.
  • SMTP Authentication: Yes
  • SMTP Security: SSL
  • SMTP Port 465
  • SMTP username: your gmail username
  • SMTP password: your gmail password
  • SMTP host: smtp.gmail.com
