First things first. Have you applied for and obtained a Gmail address?
Then enter that address in Steps 7 and 9 (for the time being).
Once you get that account set up in Windows Mail, test it out to
make sure it is working properly, both sending and receiving.
Once that is done, proceed with the customization procedure per
After you complete those 9 steps, make the corresponding change
in Windows Mail. Go to Tools, Accounts, select that Gmail account,
Properties, and on the General tab change the 'E-mail address' entry
to what you just got approved through the Gmail customization process.
Your correspondents will not be aware that you are sending through
a different SMTP server because the 'From' address they see is the
same as before.
