In the example above there are two SMTP Servers already added. If this is your first time setting this up, this area will be blank.

Click “ADD SMTPSERVER” to continue.

4. Edit SMTP Server

1. Name – This is the name which you want the server to be identified as and is personal preference, but it is a good idea to name it something to remind you that this is the server for Cloud Commerce Pro.

2. SmtpServer Type – For outbound mail this should be left as “standard”.

3. Address From – This is the email address you want to appear on your outgoing emails. This would be one of your Cloud Commerce Pro email addresses which typically start with things like “sales” or “support” followed by your company domain.

4. Server Address – This is the specific SMTP server address for you on the CCP server. This is usually starts with something like “mail” followed by your company domain.

5. Server Port – This is the specific server port for the CCP server. Typically usually it is 25 or 487.

6. Authentication Username – This is the username you would normally use to log into CCP.

7. Authentication Password – This is the password you would normally use to log into CCP.

8. Require SSL? – Most providers do support SSL, so this would normally be left ticked.

9. Display Name – This is the name that will display when people receive your emails and is personal preference.

10. Reply to Address – This is the address you would like replies to your emails to be directed towards.

If you are unsure about any of these details, contact your project manager here at Cloud Commerce Pro and we will be more than happy to help.

Once you have filled out all the fields, click “Save” at the bottom of the window to confirm your choices and return to the previous screen.

A small window will pop up. Enter a working email address that you have access to in which to send a test email.
