Google gmail, hotmail, yahoo and whatever email address you use, this method of setting up Metatrader 4 email alert works.
What a pain searching for a solution, especially gmail users! We just tried an it’s crazy. If the search led you here, this will be your final stop. We found the best way, and we took under 5 minutes. Here you go, one universal free method for any and everyone to get that email alert:
Sign up for a free email account with GMX at http://www.gmx.com
Open up your MT4 -> Tools -> Options -> Email. At the screen, tick Enable then use the following info for the rest.
SMTP Server: mail.gmx.com:587
SMTP Login : firstname.lastname@example.org
SMTP Passsword: your gmx email password
To: email address you want the message to go to (should be the email you frequent)
RESTART your MT4 program for the changes to take effect.
This method worked for us on the first try. It should for you too.
