The E-mail connector needs to know which SMTP server it should use to send e-mails. Please consult your SMTP server documentation for applicable settings.

  • ‘From’ Name
    An arbitrary name that appears as the e-mail sender’s name.
  • ‘From’ E-Mail
    An e-mail address that will be accepted by the SMTP server as a valid sender e-mail address.
  • Host
    The host name of the SMTP server.
  • Port
    The port to connect to when sending e-mails.
  • Use TLS Encryption
    Tick this option to enable TSL / STARTTLS encryption or untick to not use encryption.
  • Use Authentication
    Tick this option if authentication is required by the SMTP server and fill the username and password fields accordingly. The E-Mail connector will store the password in encrypted form for future use.

Press the ‘Test Connection’ button to verify that a connection to the SMTP server can be established.
