    What is SMTP?

    SMTP or Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is an application layer (TCP/IP) protocol that handles the process of mail exchange i.e sending & receiving emails.

    Please Note:- The admin needs to have an account on any mail server like MailChimp, sendgrid, etc.

    To configure this feature, the admin will have their own email IDs in the “Email From” and “Reply-To” section of the Mail SMTP Settings.

    How to Get the SMTP Details?

    In order to send the emails from your end, you need to synchronize your Gmail account with the app. For this, you need to add your email account details in the form of the SMTP server.

    NOTE:- You need to have an account on any SMTP service provider like Mailchimp etc. Or Gmail SMTP will too work if you want to send the emails from your end.

    In case you want to use Gmail SMTP then you can use the following:

    SMTP host: smtp.gmail.com
    SMTP username: Your Gmail Address
    and, SMTP password: Your Gmail Password
    SMTP port number: SSL (465)

    (TLS): 587

    TLS/SSL: These are basically cryptographic protocol which encrypts the data that is exchanged between a web server and a user.

    Still, if it doesn’t work, you need to enable the less secure app to access Gmail.

    NOTE:- If you have activated the two-way authentication then, please enter the app’s password while configuring SMTP.

    Difference between TLS & SSL?

    There is just a minor difference between TLS and SSL. Both come with different standards but are used to authenticate the transfer of data between servers, systems, applications, and users. TLS is the upgraded version of SSL as it uses stronger encryption algorithms as compared to SSL and also has the ability to work on various ports.
