Configure Outlook Express for Gmail

Gmail is different from other email service. The POP3, IMAP and SMTP (Port 465) are using SSL connection and SMTP (Port 587) is using STARTTLS connection. On the other hand, there's no STARTTLS option in Outlook Express. So if you want to send emails via Port 587, please use MS Office Outlook 2007 (or above version) orThunderbird 7.0 (or above version).

Suppose the proxy server IP address is 192.168.1.250 and the Gmail address is youngzsoft@gmail.com.
