Configure the SMTP server to receive notifications
balubeto last edited by
I have a firewall with pfSense 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1 (amd64).
In the System –-> Advanced ---> Notifications window it is possible to configure the SMTP server to receive notifications.
How should I configure this E-Mail service with a GMail account?

E-mail server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port of E-mail server: 465
Secure SMTP Connection: Enable SMTP over SSL/TLS ticked
From E-mail address: [choose an appropriate e-mail]
Notification E-mail address: [the e-mail you want to receive alerts on]
Notification E-mail auth username: [GMAIL account you are authenticating with]
Notification E-mail auth password: [password associated with the GMAIL notification account you are using]
Notification E-mail auth mechanism: PLAIN
If your using 2 factor with gmail you will need to setup a APP password in gmail that does not require the 2 factor.
