In order to connect your SMTP account you need to set this elements:

Service Name: name of the mailing service (Ex. → Outlook, Yahoo...)
Email: your smtp email (Ex. → jondoe@outlook.com)
Password: the password of your email account.
SMTP Host: the smtp host (Ex. → smtp.office365.com)
SMTP Port: the smtp port (Ex. → 587)
IMAP Host: the imap port (Ex. → imap-mail.outlook.com)

However Gmail/GSuite require some extra configuration:

1) Go to your inbox ( https://mail.google.com ). Click on 'Configuration' and then to POP/IMAP Settings.

Enable IMAP
Save changes and go to the next step!

2) Go to https://myaccount.google.com/security and activate "2-Step verification". Then follow this steps to generate the "App password":

Once you activate the "2-Step verification", click on "App passwords":

Generate app password 1

Select a new app as "Other (Custom name)":

Generate app password 2

Type the name of the app, for example "FindThatLead smtp" and click on "Generate":

Generate app password 3

A custom app password will be generated to use with findthatlead, copy this password for later

Generate app password 4

Finally if you are connecting a Gsuite account you need to allow access to less secure apps as the image below:

less secure apps

If you don't see this option probably you are using a standard gmail account or you are not the admin of the Gsuite account. Please contact with your admin for support.

3) The next step is to configure correctly your SPF and DKIM records but that should be done when domain and email are created (if you're using google apps) so you should have it, if not contact us for more information on this.

4) Go to https://app.findthatlead.com/dashboard, scroll down until you get into Campaign Accounts and click 'Add account'.

Set the parameters as follow :
- Service name → Google/Gsuite
- Email → Your email address
- Password → Your "App password"
- SMTP Host → smtp.gmail.com
- SMTP Port → 587
- IMAP Host → imap.gmail.com

5) All set! You can start to send emails with the 'Campaigns' tool. If you have some problems during this process don't hesitate to contact us through support@findthatlead.com and we will help you.
