Setting Mail Sending via SMTP

In online business, seamless communication is the linchpin that ensures customers stay informed and engaged. Setting up your email system correctly can make all the difference.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of configuring your website's email sending via SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). By following these steps, you'll enhance the reliability and security of your email communications, guaranteeing your messages reach your audience effectively.

Configuring SMTP Settings:

  1. Accessing Admin Area: Start by logging into your website's admin area.
  2. Navigate to Email Settings: Click on the Settings, Configuration, and E-mail Options tabs.
  3. Update E-Mail Transport Method:
    • Select "sendmail" as the E-Mail Transport Method.






4. Choose SMTP Mailer:

  • Opt for "Swiftmailer" as your SMTP Mailer option.


5. Define SMTP Connection Details in the same way:

  • SMTP Host: Specify the Host for your SMTP connection.
  • SMTP Port: Define the Port for your SMTP connection.
  • SMTP Username: Set your Username for SMTP connection.
  • SMTP Password: Enter your Password for SMTP connection.
  • SMTP Encryption: From the dropdown, select "Secure to regular port (STARTTLS)" option.


Important Note for Gmail Users: If you're using Gmail for your business, it's crucial to use an App Password instead of your main Google password. This step ensures a secure SMTP connection. Learn how to generate an App Password by reading this informative article: Google App Password Guide 

By configuring your email system to use SMTP, you're enhancing the trustworthiness of your communications. Ensuring your messages are securely transmitted not only boosts your professionalism but also safeguards crucial information. Follow these steps to refine your email setup and provide your customers with a seamless, reliable communication experience. Happy emailing!
