  • Email ID: In the “Email ID” fields for the Sender’s Address and Recipient’s Address, type the appropriate email addresses (for example, Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.). Multiple recipients’ addresses can be entered by separating them with a comma (,).
  • Password: Type your email account password in the “Password” field.
  • Port: SMTP servers normally use port 25, but there are other options. For example, port 587 is supported by most outgoing SMTP servers and it is useful for unencrypted or TLS connections. Port 465 is good for connecting via SSL.
  • Authentication: Check if authentication is required.
  • Connection Security: The standard SMTP email transfer goes without encryption. To secure it, use STARTTLS or SSL/TLS.
  • SMTP Server: In this field, select or type the name of your own email server or one provided by your Internet Service Provider. Following are the most popular server names. If yours is not listed, contact your email provider.
