Utilizing Gmail SMTP for cost-free email transmission from AEM by Aanchal Sikka

Abstract

This article provides instructions on how to enable Gmail SMTP for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) to send emails at no cost. The functionality proves valuable to developers who wish to begin working on local code for email transmission or explore email-related features in AEM, such as “Sharing Asset Links” and “Asset Share commons”.

Before proceeding, it is highly advisable to utilize a dedicated Google account specifically designated for AEM development. Once the account is properly configured, it can serve as an SMTP server, facilitating cost-free email transmission.

Setting up dedicated Google Account
To create cost-free SMTP credentials for Gmail using App Passwords, follow these steps:

Ensure you have a Gmail account dedicated to your development efforts. If you don’t have one, create a new Gmail account.
Enable 2-step verification for your Gmail account. This adds an extra layer of security to your account. You can enable it by visiting the Google Account Security page at Google Account and clicking on the “2-Step Verification” option. Follow the prompts to set it up.
