Configure your Business Email
Want to use your own business email ID when sending emails to customers instead of the default ReachOut email ID? Well, you can! Configure your outgoing in-app email address to your preferred business email ID, by major email providers (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, etc.).
You can easily manage the SMTP settings to maintain a default channel for sending outbound emails and include your company name as the Sender.
To set up your business email ID for your outgoing in-app emails to your customers,
1. Go to Settings > Preferences > Business Email and then click the Edit button to start setting up your business email.
2. Under the Email Configuration tab, select your business email provider, and the remaining fields – Host, Port, Connection will auto-populate accordingly.
3. Enter the ‘User Email’, ‘Password’, and ‘Display Name’ and click on the Save icon.
The ‘Allow in-app emails’ option will be checked off by default. This is to ensure that in the event there is an issue with your email provider channel, the in-app emails will be sent using the ReachOut email channel.
PLEASE NOTE – The SMTP setup and the verification process may vary for each email provider. Here we will walk you through how to configure your SMTP settings for the most popular email service provider(s).
