  • Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587

If your client does not support SMTP3 authentications, you won't be able to send mail through your mail client using your NIU Google mail address.

If you're having trouble sending mail and encryption is on for SMTP for your mail client, configure your SMTP server on port 587.
