In order to connect your very own SMTP account you need to set these elements:

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

However, Gmail/GSuite domains require some extra configuration:

1) Go to your inbox ( ). Click on 'Configuration' and then to POP/IMAP Settings.

Enable IMAP
Save changes and go to the next step!

2) First of all 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 Gsuite's Administrator. Please contact your Admin. for support, only the domain's Administrator can activate Less Secure Apps for all users.

3) Go to 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

4) 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 your domain's administrator for more information on this.

5) Go to, scroll down until you get into Campaign Accounts and click 'Add account'.

If you are on the custom connection set the parameters as follow :
- Service name → Google/Gsuite
- Email → Your email address
- Password → Your "App password"
- SMTP Host →
- SMTP Port → 587
- IMAP Host →

If not simply select the mail icon and introduce the "email" and "app password".

6) 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 and we will help you.
