SMTP, for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is used in sending and receiving email.
Kreezalid uses this protocol when we send automatics mails for your customers.
Why should you use your own SMTP settings ?
By default, mails to your customers are sent by our e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org.

To be sure that your customers recognize you, and to improve the professionnal aspect of your marketplace, you can use your own SMTP settings.
Your mails will be sent from your e-mail and your customers can anwser you.
Don't forget that to not be considered as spams, your mails must come from the most personalized e-mail possible.
How to configure your plateform ?
From your dashboard, in Settings -> Email Settings, you can start the configuration of your SMTP settings.
To start, set "use custom smtp settings" to yes.
Now we can modify the others fields:
