Simple Mail Transfer Protocol referred to as SMTP is a standard for electronic mail transmission. For Emails to be sent to destined users, setting up SMTP Server is vital.

VIDIZMO sets up a default SMTP server when it is installed. However, VIDIZMO offers the flexibility of configuring your own SMTP Server in your Portal.


To learn more about SMTP, see Understanding Email & SMTP.


SMTP Settings can be configured from Email & SMTP in Control Panel Settings.
