How to solve “Gmail SMTP Functionality Not Enabled” problem.


Gmail SMTP Functionality Not Enabled


Gmail SMTP Functionality Not Enabled

I ran into this issue yesterday when trying to add a new non-gmail address to my Gmail account:

You must send through SMTP servers when you send as However, this functionality is not available for your account. Please contact your domain administrator.

Try the following fix:

In google apps and under Gmail
Click Advanced settings
Under “Allow per-user outbound gateways” – Disable the checkbox and re-enable it again (or just enable it if it is initially disabled).
This should activate this setting although the downside of this is that it could take up to 24 hours to propagate in full
It should solve the error.

How to search GOOGLE by Image

Search by Image

Now you can explore the web in an entirely new way by beginning your Google search with an image. Learn more about images on the web and your own photos.

Search by image allows you to do a reverse image search and discover all sorts of content that’s related to a specific image. For example, search using a picture of your favorite band and see search results that might include similar images, webpages about the band, and even sites that include the same picture.

Four ways to search by image

Drag and drop

Drag and drop an image from the web or your computer into the search box on

Upload an image

On, click the camera icon, then select “Upload an image.” Select the image you want to use to start your search.

Copy and paste the URL for an image

Found an image on the web you’re curious about? Right-click the image to copy the URL., click the camera icon, and “Paste image URL”.

Right-click an image on the web

To search by image even faster,download the Chrome extension or theFirefox extension. With the extension installed, simply right-click an image on the web to search Google with that image.

How to search

There are a few ways to search by image:

  • Visit, or any Images results page, and click the camera icon camera icon in the search box. Enter an image URL for an image hosted on the web or upload an image from your computer.
  • Download a browser extension for Google Chrome or Firefox to search with any image on the web, simply by right-clicking on the image.Tip: After downloading your desired browser extension, you can change the extension setting so that the camera icon appears when you hover over an image. Then you will be able to simply click on the camera icon and search by the image.

Search by image works best when the content is likely to show up in other places on the web. For this reason, you’ll likely get more relevant results for famous landmarks or paintings than you will for more personal images like your toddler’s latest finger painting.

The results page

When you search by image, your results will look different than your normal Images or Web results page. The biggest difference is that your results can include non-image results like webpages that seem relevant to the image that you searched for.

Google’s use of user-submitted images and URLs

When you search by image, any images that you upload and any URLs that you submit will be stored by Google. Google uses those images and URLs solely to provide and improve our products and services.

5 Ways to Share Contacts In Google Apps

Please refer to link:

Google AppsUnfortunately, Google Apps doesn’t come with the contact sharing baked in as well as some users expect (especially if they are migrating from Lotus Notes or Microsoft Exchange).  Directory users can be shared but external ones can’t unless you use theAPI.  So for most small businesses what are your options? Here are 5 options for sharing external (contacts in your “My Contacts” group) with other users in your domain:


  • Contact Delegation – This allows users to delegate full access to the contacts in the ”My contacts” group.  This feature makes the most sense for when an executive needs to delegate  their contacts to an assistant to keep updated.  Unfortunately, the assistant won’t see the executives contacts show up in the autocomplete results (one of the main reasons for contact sharing).  To delegate your contacts, follow these instructions.
  • FlashPanel – This marketplace app comes with a lot more tools than just contact sharing but it does give you the ability to share contacts however it is admin controlled.



  • Shared Contacts for Gmail – This marketplace app allows you to share contact groups (address books) like you would share a Google doc or calendar.  
  • CRM Syncing –  This is always our recommended solution for several reasons:
  1. Collaboration – A CRM application helps you to collaborate with co-workers and is the best place to store your contacts and have a 360 degree view of all your interactions with them.
  2. Data Integrity – A CRM application preserves data integrity as address books tend to get messy in Google or any other contact manager.  We always recommend 1 way syncing of contacts from a CRM like Salesforce to ensure that your data is kept clean.
  3. Simplicity – As your team ensures the contacts you have in your CRM are accurate, the subset of contacts you choose to sync to Google do so automatically behind the scenes if you are using a cloud app like Salesforce CRM.  Clean data and less work managing contacts means better efficiencies for your small business.
