Description

Various email configuration options.


Options

E-Mail Transport Method

Defines if this server uses a local connection to sendmail or uses an SMTP connection via TCP/IP. Servers running on Windows™ and MacOS™ should change this setting to SMTP. SMTPAUTH should only be used if your server requires SMTP authorization to send messages. You must also configure your SMTPAUTH settings in the appropriate fields in this admin section. Sendmail -f is only for servers which require the use of the -f parameter to send email. This is a security setting often used to prevent spoofing. Will cause errors if your host mailserver is not configured to use it.
Default: sendmail

Emails must send from known domain?

Does your mailserver require that all outgoing emails have their from address match a known domain that exists on your webserver? This is often set in order to prevent spoofing and spam broadcasts.
