1.Install the module ‘email_template’.

2.Configure Outgoing Mail Servers

3.Go to Settings -> Technical -> Email -> Outgoing Mail servers

   a. Description: Description about the mail server to be configured.
   b. SMTP Server: Hostname or IP of SMTP server
     For example  smtp.gmail.com
   c. Connection Security: Select SSL/TLS from the drop down list.
      Sessions are encrypted with SSL/TLS through a dedicated port (default: 465)
   d. Username: Username for SMTP authentication.
      For example: abc@gmail.com
   e.  Password: Password for SMTP authentication.
      For example: password for abc@gmail.com
   f. Test the connection status by clicking ‘Test Connection’ button.
