Hello there,

Yes you can use Gmail’s SMTP here. InfinityFree doesn’t provide free SMTP for accounts but you are allowed to use external SMTP freely from 3rd party services like from Gmail here.

InfinityFree has its own KB article for this that you should read here:


Even though on the basic free hosting account there is a availability of doing gmail smtp or external smtp’s are you sure ?

If yes can you give me a tutorial simple on how to setup gmail smtp with infinityfree please :slight_smile:

Yes,use of External SMTP is allowed.
Read the article given by @UnknownLolz .

There are also many php libraries for this, like PHP Mailer

Can you provide me with a tutorial on how to setup a gmail smtp account steps to follow to have a ready gmail for smtp in order to add its details to my contact form please
