SMTP Server Settings

You may need to obtain the following information from your IT department or your Internet Service Provider (ISP)


SMTP Mail Server

Enter the name of your SMTP (outgoing) mail server here.


Port Number

This is the port that your computer uses for outgoing email. Typically it will be "25" but your IT department or ISP may have configured outgoing email differently.


Server Timeout

The number of seconds that will pass before eForms stops trying to connect with the SMTP server.


SSL Encryption

This toggles SSL encryption of the logon information on or off. Using this option will not encrypt your email; only the account name and password will be encrypted. This option can only be used if your SMTP server requires SSL encryption.


User Name

The logon name for your SMTP mail server. In most cases this will not be your email address.



The password for your SMTP mail server. This is case sensitive.


Remember Password

Checking this box allows eForms to remember the SMTP account password and lets you avoid re-entering it each time you email slips. If eForms is running on an insecure system or in a publicly accessible area we recommend that you do not set eForms to remember the password.


Reply Email

Enter the name of the email address to which delivery notifications or any recipient response will be sent.


Test Settings

Use the Test Settings button to test the email configuration you've entered. A test email will be sent to the reply address entered earlier. If the test fails you should confirm that the information entered is correct and that your network allows outgoing email from a non-standard email client. You may have to ask your IT department or ISP to grant eForms an exception in any applicable email delivery protocols.
