Configuring GoldMine to use GMail

So, you use GoldMine for your e-mail but also have a GMail account and would prefer not to have to look in 2 places?  If you are using GoldMine Corporate Edition 7.5 or greater or GoldMine Premium Edition 8.5 or greater, you’re in luck.  GoldMine can be configured to retrieve and even send e-mail through GMail.  (*Running an older version of GoldMine, skip to the end for additional information.)

1.  Tools | Options  (CE customer Edit | Preferences)
2.  E-Mail tab

Assuming this is a 2nd account…

3.  Accounts… button
4.  New button

Hope you find this of value!
Enjoy and Happy GoldMining!!




  1. Al – I thought that GM recently added support for IMAP mail servers. This would seem to be far preferable to using a POP interface for interacting with GMail. Have you played with that at all?

  2. Yes, GoldMine did recently add IMAP support.  However, I have not tried that with GMail myself.  Additionally, all versions of GoldMine use POP so the post works for ALL GoldMine users.  LMK if you end up trying it though.
