As you know, our eMailers are working relied on the (E)SMTP protocol. So, to use them, you must have a SMTP account first.
If you do not know what is SMTP account, just think it as an eMail account, because SMTP protocol are supported by most email providers/servers.
But some users may use the webmails and do not know how to set eMail account in the eMail clients.
Based on this situation, I think it is necessary to introduce how to set SMTP account(s) in AMS serial software or any other email clients.
1. Confirm whether your email server supports (E)SMTP protocol.
You can visit the official site of your email account provider or contact them (use external service), or contact your system administrator (use internal service) to confirm it.
Today, SMTP protocol are supported by most email providers/servers.
If not, you can register a free SMTP email account, we recommend Gmail or Hotmail/Outlook.
2. If you use your SMTP account(s) in Outlook, Outlook Express, Foxmail, Thunderbird or other email clients currently, setting it is very easy due to our emailing products provide the standard (E)SMTP account options for you.
3. If you have never used any SMTP account in email clients, please read the following advanced guide:
a. If you use Gmail or Hotmail/Outlook, congratulations, our eMailers support to set Gmail or Hotmail/Outlook SMTP accounts directly, that is, they will fill all the fields automatically except account and password.
b. If you use other SMTP account(s), you should know the following information first:
[SMTP Server] – the address of SMTP server, supports IP address and host name.
[Port] – the port of SMTP server, default: 25, between 1 and 65,535.
[Connection Security] – None, SSL or TLS. You do not need to know what is SSL or TLS, just need to know your SMTP server uses which security protocol.
[Authentication Required] – the SMTP requires authentication.
[User] – your user name on the SMTP server. It is the email address usually, but a few SMTP servers require the left part of @ symbol in the email address.
[Password] – your password for the user.
Usually, you may don’t know how to set the first 4 parameters, you can visit the official site of your email account provider or contact them (use external service), or contact your system administrator (use internal service) to confirm it.
c. Or, try the fast way for the popular email services – Google it, such as Google “mail.ru smtp settings”.
d. If you can not confirm these parameters still, you can guess them:
[SMTP Server] – may be mail.xxx.yyy (xxx.yyy is the right part of @ symbol in your email address, the same below), smtp.xxx.yyy, www.xxx.yyy or others.
[Port] – may be 25, 465 or other.
[Connection Security] – usually, None for 25 port, SSL for 465 port.
[Authentication Required] – it is ‘yes’ for most email servers.
e. If you did all above these with no luck, please send your email address and password to support[at]AutoMailSender.com, we will do our utmost to resolve it.
