Email Experience Manager

Use a Custom SMTP for email delivery

Abstract

Set up EXM to use a Custom SMTP provider for sending email messages.

For email delivery, you can choose to use the Sitecore Email Cloud or the Custom SMTP.

To switch from using the Sitecore Email Cloud to using the Custom SMTP, you must disable the Sparkpost configurations and then enable the CustomSmtp configurations.

To start using the Custom SMTP:

  1. In the Website\Web.config file, set the eds:define appsetting to CustomSmtp:

    <add key="eds:define" value="CustomSmtp" />
    
  2. In the \App_Config\Sitecore\EmailExperience\Sitecore.EDS.Providers.CustomSmtp* configuration files, configure your SMTP and POP3 servers.
