OK, forget my previous answer; I managed to send an e-mail via the Gmail SMTP server following these steps:

- I turned on 2-factor authentication for my Gmail account (

- I added an app password (

- I configured the Email Connector in Mendix using the app password (see screenshot below)

- I send a test e-mail filling in: Subject, From, To and a body


Hopefully this also works for you!





I think you should set Use TLS to True.

Do you use two-factor authentication for your Gmail-account? In that case, you might need an app password as well, not sure how that works. You can read more about that here.

Hopefully this helps!
