Sending Mail with SMTP¶
You can send emails via the default SMTP server included with your Simple Hosting instance. You can also either use the SMTP server of Gandi Mail or an external SMTP server provided by a third party.
It is necessary that you fill out the “from” field on the configuration page of your website CMS, otherwise your emails will not be sent out.
We recommend that you use the default SMTP server for basic mail exchanges or notifications such as password reset, account activation or any other notification not involving a high amount of mail traffic.
This option is not recommended for larger mail operations (for example, newsletters.)
For Node.js, Python and Ruby instances, please specify the SMTP server of the datacenter where the instance was created.
