  4. During install...it will generate self certificated...just press enter for use default value that on that self certificated windows..
  5. After done make self certificate...dont start it yet but please replace stunnel.conf on stunnel installation directory with attached version that come with this article...then start stunnel
  6. if the stunnel icon have been on the task bar on the bottom right...then stunnel installation and configuration is right...
  7. Open MT4 that we want to setting for email ...go to Tools -> Options -> Email
  8. Check enable, SMTP server : 127.0.0.1, SMTP login : email_address@gmail.com (put full gmail address), SMTP password : (gmail email password), From : (same with SMTP login), To : (Email address that customer want to recieve alert notification)
