SMTP (email) Settings
To allow a user account to send out emails, SMTP settings must be set up correctly. You will need to contact your email service provider or your IT staff for your SMTP settings.
SMTP settings can be changed on your user profile.
SMTP Server Name: the name of your SMTP email server
SMTP User Name: usually your full email address, sometimes just the part before the @ symbol (everything but domain)
SMTP Password: your email password
SMTP Port: the port your SMTP server requires
Use SSL / Use TLS: check these boxes if the SMTP settings for your email server require them
The admin profile must have SMTP settings set up correctly in order for notifications to be sent to users.
If SMTP settings are set up on the admin profile, users with blank settings for SMTP server name, port, and SSL/TLS will inherit those settings from admin. Users can have different SMTP settings from the admin account, and user settings override defaults from admin (ex. a user would like to use a Gmail account instead of a company email).
