Set up Goldmine with Google Mail
Has your company switched to Google Apps and you’re wondering how to get your emails in Goldmine? It’s actually quite easy. (I say Google Apps, but this will work for personal use Gmail as well as Google Apps Mail).
First you need to enable IMAP on your Google Mail account (if it isn’t already). In Google Mail go to Settings. Then click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab> Check the radio button to enable IMAP.
Now set up Goldmine to connect to GMail. In Goldmine go to Tools> User settings> Preferences> Email. In the Getting mail section set the server to IMAP and enter address imap.gmail.com. Username is your email address, password is your password. Check the ‘Use encrypted connection (SSL)’ box.
In the Sending Mail section the SMTP server is smtp.gmail.com, return address is your email address. Again, check the ‘Use encrypted connection (SSL)’ box.
I think Google have made security on their servers a bit tighter. Follow these extra steps to get things working:
