How to configure Gmail with other 3rd party programs

Have you ever wondered how can I configure my GMail to send and receive email from 3rd party software? Well, it’s very simple actually. The new versions of Thunderbird actually automatically finds the correct settings and applies them. For software that doesn’t do this automatically, I have included the correct settings:

POP
Incoming settings
IMAP server – pop.gmail.com
Port – 995
Security type – SSL/TLS

Outgoing settings
SMTP server – smtp.gmail.com
Port – 465
Security type – SSL/TLS

SMTP
Incoming settings
IMAP server – imap.gmail.com
Port – 993
Security type – SSL/TLS

Outgoing settings
SMTP server – smtp.gmail.com
Port – 465
Security type – SSL/TLS
