When you setup the SMTP server information you should see an option for either "this server requires authentication" or "does not require authentication". If you select the NOT option you will not be prompted to put in a user name and password that has access rights to the SMTP server. In a case like of Gmail it would be your email address and the password that you use to access that email account

If you find the information provided useful or solves your problems, help other users find the solution easier by giving kudos and marking my post as an accepted solution.
