Configure Mail

On the Yappes platform, automated emails are sent based on user actions in the Admin Console and API Manager.

To enable the delivery of these emails, you need to connect an email server in the Mail Config section of the Admin Console. These auto-generated emails include invitations, invoices, and login failure notifications.

You can do following actions in Mail Config:

  • Setup default emails, such as Send to Email, BCC and CC.
  • Setup Email Servers, such as SMTP Server, SMTP Port, SMTP Password and Username.
  • Setup Communication Email From.

By setting up all these things, you ensure that the emails are sent successfully and all platform users get necessary updates without fail.
