Designing beautiful email messages for Gmail

Gmail connector is on-hold:
Sorry for the inconvenience, the Gmail Connector is temporarily unavailable.

Last year, Google changed the requirements to use their API, which is now beginning to affect applications that use their API services. One of the impacted applications is the Gmail connector for BEE Pro.

With that being said, we are still planning to update the Gmail connector so that it follows Google’s new guidelines. Unfortunately, we can’t provide an ETA on when it will be available again. In the meantime, we introduced an import option to the BEE Templates add-on for Gmail, so that our users still have a simple way to send their messages from BEE Pro to Gmail.

If you have any questions or feedback, please let us know!


Level up your messages in Gmail

Have you ever thought about sending a cool email message to your friends, your colleagues or your loved one? It's now easy with BEE!

You can choose your favorite between a lot of ready-to-use Gmail templates (made for promotions, invitations, greeting cards, thank you notes, startup presentations, blog updates, job alerts, product announcements). Are you wondering how? 

There are two ways to use BEE with Gmail:

  1. The Gmail Add-on: BEE Templates for Gmail
  2. The BEE Pro feature: Gmail connector for BEE Pro 


1. Gmail Add-on

No registration is required to use the BEE email templates within your Gmail account: just install the add-on and start creating your new beautifully designed emails!



See more details about using the BEE Templates Add-on for Gmail.


2. Gmail Connector (BEE Pro)

Have you seen a cool template in the Gmail Add-on and would you like to edit it? It's simple! 

  • Connect your BEE account to your Gmail account before you start designing (from Brand Settings)
  • When you want to send a specific message to Gmail (from Export).


From Brand Settings

Go to Settings / Connectors ...



... Click the Connect button for Gmail


And follow the steps to log-in. Your credentials are not stored in BEE Pro: they are just used to connect your accounts.



From Export

Log-in to your BEE Pro account, choose your favorite template, edit and save it. When your message is ready, click on the Export message button in the Message Details page...



... and then click on Export to another application.



A new window will be displayed with the connectors' list: select Gmail.



Follow the steps to log-in. Your credentials are not stored in BEE Pro: they are just used to connect your accounts. Then, Log-in to your Gmail account and you will find your email into the Drafts folder!


Are you experiencing any issues with Gmail?

Unfortunately, Gmail has some limitations (e.g. it ignores email responsiveness). To make the most out of the Gmail Connector, we suggest you keep your design simple and in a single column. 


Are you curious about the other sending apps' or ESPs' connectors available?

    How would I go about switching gmail email accounts? I have two gmail emails that I need to email from, but I am not given an option to switch accounts once I have chosen an email.
    (occasionally I am asked to choose an email account but not with any consistency)

    Hi Ian, do you want to push your BEE Pro messages to 2 different Gmail accounts?

    Hello Matteo,
    Yes, I would like to push BEE Pro messages through two separate gmail accounts. After leaving the comment above, I read somewhere that I would have to upgrade my account to enable this feature? Is this correct?

    Yes, you should upgrade to the Agency Plan, this version of BEE Pro allows you set up different brands (i.e. clients, business units, brands within your company) so that you can better organize your emails, control user access, and specify different connectors for each brand.

    Let me know if you need further information ;)
