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

d. Username: Username for SMTP authentication.

  For example: abc@gmail.com

e. Password: Password for SMTP authentication.

  For example: password for abc@gmail.com
