Email Configuration

ARForms allows you to set Auto Response Mail globally in ARForms > Global settings. You can set a default setting for email. Even you will be able to choose the server which you want to use to send mail.

If you want to set different Email settings for each form then you can manage it also from ‘Auto Response Mail’ inside the Form ‘Settings’ tab.

Each email from ARForms will be send using this configuration, which you set globally, there is a various method to send an email which ARForms provides by default you just need to select from them.

  • WordPress Server Method

    All Email that we are sending using WordPress default server in which you didn’t need to configure Host, Port or any specific email id.This method requires little configuration. Easy to setup.But this method is unreliable. This method is the most likely reason your emails are in SPAM, or not reaching your inbox at all.

    SMTP Methods allow you to send Emails using you a specific email account like your Gmail or other email service providers.These settings here would depend on your email provider.Settings for Gmail or a Google Apps account can be found here. For Yahoo, try this. If you are using GoDaddy, set the SMTP Host to localhost, and leave the Username, Password and Port as blank.If your email provider is not from above you can simply google it and you will get required configuration data with a couple of minutes.If you are using an email provided by your web host, you would find the settings with them.

    2. Sender Email: Type in something like ARForms@myblog.com.
    3. Username: The username that you use to login to this email account.
