Make Proxy Settings in Office Outlook for Gmail

2014/06/24 15:59

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, you need to use MS Office Outlook 2007 or above version. If you have no MS Office Outlook 2007 or above version installed, you can also use Thunderbird.

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

Section 1 - Create port map rules in CCProxy

1. Open "Options" dialog box and click "E" button to open "Port Map" dialog box (Figure 1).
