Overview

There have been many discussions on how to use Gmail (or other SMTP server) as mail
server in SAP for IDES or any SAP server setup for training purpose where the customer
does not own a separate mail server in the domain. This document will help for those
who are looking for the solution to use Gmail for training purpose or in case customer
does not have their own mail server.
In general Gmail or any other SMTP server can be configured following the same steps.
However, this document will guide to use Gmail with the help of relay server concept
since the Gmail cannot be used directly in SAP.
