E-Mail Server Settings

You can manage e-mail servers if you are a user with a role of at least Administrator by clicking Tools > Settings > E-Mail Servers and then using the following buttons:

Click this button to create a new e-mail server; a context menu will open that allows you to select which type of e-mail server you want to create.
Click this button to edit the currently selected e-mail server.
Click this button to delete the currently selected e-mail server.

SMTP Server 

The most common type of e-mail server to send e-mails is SMTP; you can configure the following settings for an SMTP server:

HostThe IP address or hostname of the SMTP server.
Port
The port of the SMTP server (default SMTP port is 25).
Security Protocol
The security protocol to use when connecting to the SMTP server.
Authentication Type
The authentication type to use when connecting to the SMTP server.

None. 
No authentication will be performed; the SMTP allows anonymous connections.

Custom Credentials.
A custom username and password will be used for authentication when connecting to the SMTP server.

Windows Authentication.
The credentials of the user that runs Mail & Deploy Server (see Server) will be used for authentication when connecting to the SMTP server.
Username 
The username to use for authentication when connecting to the SMTP server; this setting is only applicable when Authentication Type is set to Custom Credentials.
Password
The password to use for authentication when connecting to the SMTP server; this setting is only applicable when Authentication Type is set to Custom Credentials.

Once you have entered the SMTP server details, you can click the button to send a test e-mail; a new dialogue will show up that allows you to enter the sender e-mail address and recipient e-mail address to be used for the test e-mail.
