    Where do I insert the verification code for SMTP?

    Asked by Nrcaa on August 25, 2016 at 03:26 PM

    I received an email with the verification code but where do I insert this on the website?  The email selection must be chosen from a drop down box and I can't get it to "add another email".

    There are two options that you can use to add a sender email. 

    Option 1: You can add your email address as a sender using the verification code. Here's a guide that you can follow: https://www.jotform.com/help/238-How-to-Add-a-Custom-Sender-Address-to-an-Email-Alert. Please note that the emails will still be sent from our mail servers.

    Verification code is used for Verified option.

    Option 2: If you have your SMTP details, then you use those and set your sender address. Here's a guide that you can follow: https://www.jotform.com/help/244-How-to-Setup-SMTP-for-a-Form. With this method, the notification will be sent from your own mail server.

    Verification code is not needed for SMTP.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
