Email Notification Settings Available in BookingPress
Please select one of the email services to send email notifications.
Options available are:
- PHP Mail
- WP Mail
- SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)
Please take note that it is highly recommended that you use SMTP because emails sent with PHP Mail are generally flagged as spam and also it takes time to send emails.
Sender Name: This option is used to set the sender name in all email notifications that will be sent from the system.
Sender Email: This option is used to set the sender name in all email notifications that will be sent from the system.
Admin Email: This option is used to send email notifications to the admin.
Let’s understand how to configure SMTP for Gmail, but you can set it for other email services that support SMTP. When you select the SMTP option from “Mail Service”, the below inputs will be displayed. A Google SMTP configuration example:
SMTP Host – smtp.gmail.com SMTP Port – 465 (SSL) or 587 (TLS) SMTP Secure – SSL, TLS or Disabled SMTP Username – Your Gmail address SMTP Password – Your Gmail password
Once you set the above options, you can test your SMTP connection status. Whether it got successfully connected or not. You can test it by sending a test email to any email address where you can check if the email is received or not.
