SMTP - How to use SMTP service
This article guides you through the steps of how to use SMTP for your domain.
Set a SMTP Password
Choose the settings option from the sidebar/top menu in Mutant Mail dashboard.
Search for setting related to "SMTP".
Set SMTP Password for your account.
Save it using the button.
DNS Record changes
As SMTP service is on a different server than our normal service, SPF record needs to be updated.
Please SPF record in your dns as below.
Before : "v=spf1 mx ~all"
After : "v=spf1 mx a:smtp.cliffmail.com ~all"
If you have a modified SPF record for your domain, remember to add the bold part.
SMTP Credentials are to be used as follows,
SMTP Username : Your Mutant Mail username SMTP Password : Password configured above
Note : You will only be allowed to send email that are for your verified domain on Mutant Mail Account
Reply has to be done only by your Control/Recipient id. There is no change in receive/reply flow. Access to SMTP was opened mainly for folks who are paying for email to use on their websites (like WordPress).
