I send some security camera pictures to GMail and would like them bundled automatically in the inbox.


Makes it easier to browse the image thumbnails.


I would like to use GMail SMTP to upload the images but they become stored as individual emails.


Using GMail SMTP is more portable if I move ISPs.


Here are a couple of examples: 


Using my ISPs SMTP the GMail layout is this and is done automatically with up to 100 images side by side:



Using GMail SMTP this is what I get - each image are stored as individual emails:



Anyone know how to automatically bundle images in the inbox using GMail SMTP for upload?


I know there are GMail guides for bundling to labels but that does not work as well as using my ISPs SMTP.

I'm not really understanding the bundling stuff and the issues there.

However, Google does offer an SMTP service on a different FQDN and non-tls over port 25. I don't immediately see how that would be different but you can only try ; ).
