    Yes you can use it for gmail. You must use the same settings that you would use for your email client to send and receive via gmail.

    Remember (If you not alredy done that) to config your gmail to allow external connections.
    This is done in gmail settings.

    Why bother?

    You're safer using your ISP's smtp server. A lot of ISP's will block smtp traffic as a spam prevention.

    You can still send the VM to your gmail account, you don't have to use their smtp server.

    You would use the smtp server provided by your isp. the same one they recomend in the outbound settings of your email client.

    You would then put your gmail address in your extension configuration.

    3cx will send the VM as an email to your gmail account just as any email client would send out an email.

    Thanks for all your help. I decided to use the smtp server of my ISP. Works fine.
