Email Settings

Setting your email server settings so that communication with customers comes from your domain

By using the Email Settings, Orbirental will funnel all outgoing email mesages through your mail server, and those messages will be stamped as coming from your business's email address instead of Orbirental. This will also allow you to keep a record of all messages send by the system on your behalf (they will show in your Sent inbox) ## STEP 1: access the Email Settings page Navigate to Agency Settings > Email Settings tab ## STEP 2: enter your email server settings If you're using gmail or gmail for business, enter: - your email address - smtp.gmail.com as the Mail Server Hostname - 587 as the Mail Server Port - re-enter your gmail address - enter your email password - click Save Then click on the Test Email Settings button to check if your settings are correct.
