    Hi, I've been trying to set up my mailing software (ARPreach) with my Gmail account, I've tried using both SSL and TLS on ports 465 and 587 with no luck. Finally, the settings seemed to work correctly:

    SMTP server: localhost
    SMTP server port: 25
    SMTP server user name: my gmail address
    SMTP server password: my gmail pw
    Encryption: None
    Keep connection alive: checked.

    As a novice, these settings seem to not use the Google SMTP servers, is that correct? If so, am I currently sending through webmail?

    Hi Win,

    The server setting localhost (127.0.0.1) means that you are using the server that the software is installed on to relay out your email.

    Thank you for the reply and warm welcome :) In that case do you know of any good email software that can send out emails using multiple Gmail accounts?
