What can I use this for? 

Using a custom email host will allow you to use your own SMTP server to send your Hub emails. This feature provides more control over email deliverability, but it requires a certain level of technical knowledge to use effectively. As a result, some may find it to be unnecessary for their needs.

πŸ’‘An SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server's primary purpose is to send, receive, and/or relay outgoing mail between email senders and receivers.

NOTE: If using Gmail, the steps are a little different. For instructions on how to send your emails through Gmail, follow along with our article entitled Send Hub Emails through your Gmail Host

Step 1 - Email configuration settings

Head to the Emails tab in your Hub settings to access Email Configuration.


Next, toggle the Use Custom Host option.

Step 2 - Fill in the required fields

For the purpose of this article I will be using a test SMTP server to fill out these fields below. You'll want to enter the information that is specific to your mail host. βœ‰οΈ


Step 3 - Send a test

Once you have entered your mail host info and have saved your changes we can send a test email to make sure everything is working properly. πŸ€“

Click on any Hub email template and then send a preview to an email address of your choice.
