  1. Hi Ankit,
    Unifier topics are really helpful resource and you have provided really good explanations on installation and trouble shooting topics I have installed unifier on my local machine. Can you help me to setup gmail mail server configuration setup with screenshots.
    Thanks, Kishore Kadam


    • Hello Kishor,

      Unifier support outbound mail without user’s password. And by default Gmail block such mail request. So the email configuration with Gmail will not work.


      • I have seen this working with gmail mail server previously with one of consultant ,I suggest you can test it from your end. I am a functional consultant hence i can’t comment on mail server configurations.
