New to Wealth-Lab. I'm trying to set up email alerts from a strategy I set up. In "preferences" it asks about SMTP Host and SMTP Port. I want the alerts to come to a gmail account. Where would I find SMTP Host and SMTP Port?

Thanks in advance.

Often times questions like this have been discussed before and answers can be found as you type a few keywords in the "Search Forum..." text box. Just give it a try by typing in "email" in the search box and you get related discussions in real time. For example, you might find this thread useful as a 'guided tour':

Also, we have a Knowledge Base (Wealth-Lab Wiki) which may also come in handy. Here's one extra step required by Google to take:
