Email information is required for sending emails from ACEN. Click on 'Save' button to save options.

Activation center: Email options

SMTP Server

Enter smtp server name here. For example: smtp.mysite.com.

Same SMTP server information is used for administrators and clients.

SMTP Port

Enter smtp server port here.

Standard smtp port number is 25 but it is often blocked by ISPs. In most cases you should be using port 587 with or without SSL enabled.
Do not use port 465. Use port 587 instead as .NET smtp client supports STARTTLS encryption only.

SMTP Username

Enter smtp server username here.

If this value is valid email address it will be used as default From email address instead of support email address (see below) to avoid relaying problems in case these two addresses are different. Support email address will still be set as default Reply to email address.

SMTP Password

Enter password for above smtp server user.

Use SSL

Check to enable SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for SMTP server.

Support email address 

This should be email address of your support department and is used for FROM email field (example: support@mysite.com)

Support name 

This value is used when sending emails from ACEN in conjunction with Support email address option.
