By enabling this, you can find all the errors related to SMTP

Hourly Email Sending Limit – In most shared hosting and some VPS hosting servers, there is a limit for sending emails in an hour.

If your host allows you to send only 100 emails per hour, you can enter this limit in the “Hourly Email Sending Limit” section and the system will send only 100 emails per hour.

Default Sender Email – This is the default sender email address to be used with outgoing emails. You can change the email address for each campaign. This is the PHP mail setting and is applicable only if the SMTP is disabled.

  • Single opt-in 
  • Double opt-in

In the ‘single opt-in’, users can subscribe to your newsletter by simply filling up the subscription form. There is no confirmation mail to activate the subscription.

In ‘double opt-in’ mode, we are sending a confirmation mail to the user after filling up the subscription form. The user is added to the email list only after the email confirmation. This is the most widely used subscription mode.

We recommend the Double opt-in mode which suits for the anti-spam laws.

These are ‘Email Subscribed’ , ‘Subscription Confirmed’ and ‘Email Unsubscribed’.
