  1. Go to your settings (click on the cog in the top-right corner).
  2. Click on Email Preferences on the right-hand side.
  3. Enter the details as below in the Email Server Settings tab and click Save.
  • Email Server Protocol: smtps
  • Email Server Host:
  • Email Server Port: 465
  • Email Server Username: Your full email address eg.
  • Email Server Password: Your email password

You will have to enable gmail to accept connections “less secure connections” to allow Bullet to send emails through your gmail account:

  1. Visit
  2. Select Turn On for Access for less secure apps.

Google have updated their security so now you need to do the following too. 

  1. Start chrome in incognito mode
  2. Go to:
  3. Sign into the account you want Bullet to send emails from.

One you’ve finished this, you’ll be able to send emails through the account from Bullet. I found this information in this page (the 3rd bullet point under troubleshooting) After you have setup your email settings and enabled less secure apps in gmail, you can test the settings by emailing yourself an Invoice from your bullet account.
NOTE: All emails from your company in Bullet will be send through the gmail account you specify – regardless of which user is logged into your company.

If you have the 2-steps verification set up for Gmail account, you can:

  1. Go to
  2. Go to Sign In and Security
  3. Go to App passwords
  4. Create a custom app – custom name
  5. Generate password
  6. Use the 12 digits generated password as your password for the Gmail account (with your normal Gmail username) in Bullethq.
