Configuring Workflow to use Gmail for Email Notifications

Microsoft Dynamics GPI’ve done a lot of work around the Microsoft Dynamics GP Workflow module and have configured Email Notifications to work with numerous different SMTP servers. One recent one we configured was Gmail.

This was not actually as straightforward as configuring other SMTP servers as the details Google publish are not accurate in that the port they list for SSL is not the correct one.

The settings required are below:

Workflow Setup

The key elements are:

  • Server Name –
  • Port – 587

The final step required, is to navigate to Less secure apps and change the toggle to On:

Less secure apps

With these settings, Gmail can be used to send the Notification Emails.
