On this article we’re going to set up Metatrader for email sending. This is recommended so you don’t miss important messages happening to your account.
Getting a password from Google
If you want to connect your Google email account, you have to generate a new password for Metatrader. To generate a Google password:
On the GMail page click on the Apps menu at the top right corner and then click on Account.
Select Security on the left menu and then click on the 2-Step Verification link located under the How to sign in to Google section.
2-Step Verificationis On for App passwords to display.
Go to the bottom of the page, and click on App passwords.
Add a new App by using the selection boxes at the bottom and click the Generate button.
Google will create a new random password. Copy it. You will not be able to see it again. If you lose it, you will have to create a new one.
On MetaTrader go to Tools > Options > Email and enter the following information:
- SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
- SMTP login: email@example.com
- SMTP password: your-password
- From: firstname.lastname@example.org
- To: email@example.com
Make sure you use the password generated in the previous step.
Press the Test button to confirm everything is ok.
