System SMSs

Clicking the Ssytem SMSs tab will bring up a list of the system SMSs by ID and Title.

To add new System SMSs click the plus icon and enter the Message Ttitle and Body for the message. There is also a tick box Option to add Auto Login Links to the message. 

Import Bounce & Spam

Here you can enter a list of email address that are known to be spam, or are to be ignored. There is also a radio button to select Bounce Count or Spam Count to keep counters of the number of Bounced or Spam messages. Click update to save changes.

Mail Servers

Here you can enter your Mail Server details, which will be used for sending and receiving emails. You are able to set server address/url, and ports for sending /receiving emails. Also select whether to use SSL for email reception or not, and what type of email service (POP3/IMAP) to expect when talking to email servers.

System Emails

Clicking the System Emails tab will bring up a list of System Emails by ID, Title and who they should appear from and the Subject of the system email.

These emails are sent based on events happening within the system. For example, Backups being ready for download. There is a test button (envelope icon), that can send the email without the event, just to test it's working as intended. The first half dozen are system default messages, and cannot be altered. However you can add additional custom system email notifications by clicking the plus icon and entering the details of the message. These can then be called up to send messages and alerts within your own pages.

Clicking save creates a new system email. You can use the ID to generate the email message from your page.
