Browse to:

Administration >> System >> Outgoing Mail >> Configure New SMTP server.

Configure the fields as the following:

Service provider: gmail


SMTP port: 465

Protocol: SMTP

Timeout: default

TLS: yes

Username: your gmail user.

Password: your gmail password.

Update info, and test ;)

I hope it helps!


I am using Confluence. I do not see such menu item.

I will suggest to setuo it using JNDI as described here:
