Before sending a newsletter, you need to specify the email address (sender) from which the message will be sent. Once added, new senders are saved in the database and become available for selection in a drop-down list in subsequent campaigns at the "Send" step.
In order to add a new sender, you need to complete fields listed below.
Name of the sender which will appear in recipients' email clients.
Email address from which the message will be sent.
Reply-To is the email address to which your recipients will send replies to your newsletter. If you do not complete this field then replies will be sent to the address specified in the "Email" field.
Transport. Email messages can be sent by means of various mail services, alternatively called transports. The transport selection list can contain the following items:
- System Default. When this option is selected messages are sent by the default transport specified in the Webasyst framework configuration.
Read more about configuring the default transport in the developer documentation.
- PHP function mail(). Some web-hosting companies allow sending email message by means of this transport only. If it is required to specify additional parameters for the mail() function you can enter them in the provided text field. The default parameters are -f%s.
- Sendmail is the web server's system command for sending email in UNIX-like operating systems. The "Sendmail" option will allow you to specify a non-standard system command for sending messages if you are an experienced server administrator.
- SMTP is a special server which is specifically used for sending email messages. You can send newsletters via any SMTP server for which you have connection credentials: host, port, user name, and password.
