Custom SMTP is only used for your localhost’s SMTP. If you want to use Google SMTP, select Google in the Email connection.

Here's a screenshot. enter image description here

Select Google Apps or Gmail. That's the first option before Custom SMTP.

  • How to do that? Pleas explain in details. Commented Sep 16, 2020 at 13:56
  • In the E-mail Connection option, select Google/Gmail instead of Custom SMTP. I added a screenshot above for your reference. Commented Sep 17, 2020 at 6:11
  • Only I have to select Google mail and to keep other field blank Commented Sep 17, 2020 at 14:23
  • After selecting Google Apps or SMTP. Just enter your Google Apps e-mail and password. It should work. :D If you're using custom SMTP, the host should be the IP address of your mailserver. May I know what webhosting company you're using? Commented Sep 19, 2020 at 8:14
  • I am using GoDaddy Commented Sep 19, 2020 at 16:06
