Looking to integrate your Google Workspace account with SendMails.io? You’re in the right place! This guide will walk you through the process step by step. Let’s dive in!
- Ensure you have admin access to your Google Workspace. If you don’t, you might need to request it from a colleague.
Step 1: Enable Two-Step Verification #
- Log into your Admin Console. It should look something like this:
- Search for Two-Step Verification.
- Once you’re in the Two-Step Verification section, you need to allow users to activate their two-step verification.
- By default, this option is turned off. Ensure you enable it. If you don’t have the necessary permissions, ask a colleague with admin access to do it for you.
Step 2: Activate Two-Step Verification for Your Email #
- Go to myaccount.google.com and ensure you’re logged in with the email you want to connect with SendMails.io.
- Navigate to Security.
- Scroll down and activate the Two-Step Verification.
- You’ll be prompted to enter your phone number for verification. After entering it, you’ll receive an OTP (One-Time Password) to confirm.
- Once verified, you’ll receive a prompt on your device. Click on Turn On. This action will activate the two-step verification for your account.
Step 3: Create an App Password #
- In the same Security section, navigate to App Password.
- Choose and name your new app password as “sendmaze.io”.
- Click on Generate. This will provide you with an app password. Remember, this password is unique and should be kept confidential.
Step 4: Connect to SendMails.io #
- Head over to SendMails.io.
- Navigate to Sending and then to the Sending Server.
- Click on New Server and choose SMTP.
- Fill in the details as follows:
- Hostname: smtp.gmail.com
- Username: Your email address
- Password: The app password you generated in the previous step
- SMTP Port: 465
- SMTP Encryption Method: SSL
Once you’ve filled in the details correctly, your SMTP should connect successfully with SendMails.io, allowing you to send emails using your Google Workspace account.
