SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) which is an internet standard communication protocol which allows you to send outgoing emails.
To send emails from TaxCalc you will need to set up your SMTP details so that TaxCalc can connect to your email account. Once complete, you will be able to send emails from within TaxCalc, either using your own email account, or your offices email account, depending on your user settings.
We also have a video guide for this setup which can be found here:
From Admin Centre > Firm Details > Edit Firm > Outgoing Email Settings, select Add to open the Add SMTP details dialog:
Your email provider will be whoever hosts your email. From the Email Provider dropdown list, we have provided some of the most common:
If your email provider does not appear in the list, then select ‘Other’.
SMTP Server, Encryption Type and SMTP Port
Once you have selected your email provider, the SMTP Server, Encryption Type and SMTP Port fields are automatically populated. However, we strongly advise that you confirm the details either with your IT team or on your email providers website.
If you have selected ‘Other’ you will need to manually enter your SMTP server details. Your IT team will be able to provide you with this information, or please refer to your email providers website.
Please be aware that the details are subject to change via your email provider. You will also need to ensure that the Email password within SMTP details is managed if you change your email account password.
If you need any further assistance, please contact your IT team, or review the specific provider setting requirements from your email providers website.
