SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol and is an Internet-based protocol used for exchanging emails between different computers. It is a widely accepted standard for transferring emails over the Internet, and is widely deployed by ISPs and corporate networks.
SMTP allows for secure communication of emails, including encrypted messages, as well as authentication of the sender.
SMTP also allows for the transfer of larger files than other standards, such as POP3 or IMAP, due to its higher maximum file size limit. Additionally, SMTP provides a reliable means of email delivery by using acknowledgements and error codes to report issues with delivery.
This makes it essential in ensuring that email messages make it through to their intended recipients. In order to use SMTP, one must have access to an SMTP server which can be provided by an ISP or a mail server provider.
SMTP is also closely related to other important email protocols such as IMAP, POP3, MIME, and DKIM which all work together in order to ensure proper delivery of emails over the Internet.
Welcome to SMTP configuration 👋
✔ Email address: the mailbox you want to warm up
✔ Email password: the password from the mailbox you want to warm up
✔ "Send from name": Your name, which will be seen by the recipient of your letters
✔ SMTP SSL: This means if your server uses a secure connection. On if you are using a secure port (eg 587 or 465 port). Off if you are using an unsecured port (eg port 2525). Warmy does not support using port 25*
✔ SMTP username: The username of the SMTP server that will be authenticated, depends on the server it can be as mailbox email address or another login. Please check your SMTP server settings. In the example, SMTP username matches Email address
✔ SMTP password: The password of the SMTP username. Please check your SMTP server settings. In the example, SMTP password matches Email password
✔ SMTP host: If "SMTP username" is different from "Email address", then "SMTP host" must be a domain from "SMTP username”. Also can be as IP address
✔ SMTP port: by default used 587 or 465 for secure connection and 25 (standard port), 2525 an alternate port.
✔ IMAP SSL: This means if your server uses a secure connection. On if you are using a secure port (eg port 993). Off if you are using an unsecured port (eg port 143)
✔ IMAP username: most of the time the email address is the IMAP username
✔ IMAP password: most of the time the email password is the IMAP password
✔ IMAP host: For example, if you are using google server, then you need to specify imap.google.com or outlook.office365.com. If you are using a custom server, then the IMAP host will match your domain.
✔ IMAP port: by default used 993 for secure connection and 143 (standard port)
