The Email SMTP section settings is where you add or update the settings for your email account to be able to send email from Careerlister.

  1. Admin > Email > SMTP Settings.
  2. Select which email account to use: Company (all) or User
  3. Select the Email Provider from the Email Provider dropdown. (if the email provider isn't shown see "Create a new one" below)
  4. Optionally Alter the Friendly From text box.
  5. Enter the email address in the Email Address field.
  6. Enter the password to the email address in the Password field.
  7. Click Test and Save.
The system will run a test on the email address credentials and give you a response from your email provider.  If it is successful you will see "Successful" as an alert which means everything was saved and the settings are set.

**Create a new one.

If your email provider is not found you can create a new email provider for your account.  Careerlister does not have these settings and must be obtained from the email provider.  Follow the directions below.

  1. In the Email Provider list select "create a new one".
  2. Additional fields for the smtp server, port, SSL and TLS will be shown.
  3. Fill in and check each of these fields / checkboxes in accordance with your email provider's instructions on how to connect to your email account.
  4. **Follow along with the above directions at #4 through #7.
