    The instructions on the page about sending mail from Gmail should be updated.

    When I try to follow them using port 587 I see the error

    7/31/17 Instructions above failed with error Couldn't reach server. Worked fine when value left set to 465 which is the default value that auto-fills.

    Also, there is no "add account link". And the explicit heading "add another email address you own"
