SMTP- gmail account

In send SMTP for gmail account, can I know how to create email and password , either as variables or arguments?


In send SMTP Mail Messages Activity you can directly set your Email and password in the property panel.
You can even send your Email and password as a variable and even as an argument too.

Let me know if you have any clarifications or queries.

Yes @abhyudai_munna, should I keep password as securestring data type or simply string?

@sushmithaelluru you can use Get password activity it will store your password in encrypted format using datatype string

Simple String will only work here.
If you want to securely pass the password, you can use get credentials Activity which will return a secure string and then convert it to a String and pass it to SMTP Activity.

Ya @indra, Can I use separate activity, for password to send email ?

Ok @abhyudai_munna, but if I keep value to the password with string data type, it is showing that
“Compile error encountered processing expression”.

yes you can use and pass variable in password property

could you please share us with the sample workflow you built so that i can understand the issue clearly?
