After you’ve followed the guide to getting to the Mail Delivery wizard, you can hit ‘Start Wizard’ and begin adding a mail type. This guide is for those of you using your default server email (wp_mail) – if you’d like to use a mail provider (e.g. your own webmail, or something like gmail), you’ll need to skip over to the guide for SMTP setup.
1) Sender Details
Your sender details let you set the name and email you want to appear on the ‘from’ section of your outbound emails.
This is usually something like:
Send from name: Widget Company
Send from email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Enter your name and email into the wizard as in the screenshot below (using your info):
2) Mail Server
If you’re following this tutorial, simply leave the default option checked (wp_mail). This is the default for most WordPress servers and is usually fine for low-scale emails out (from good hosting providers):
Then click ‘Validate Settings’.
3) Validate Settings & Confirmation
Zero BS CRM will now go away and try and send an email using the settings you’ve just set. If everything went okay, you’ll get an email in your admin inbox (from this new mail delivery method), and you’ll see a screen as below, saying ‘Confirmation’.
If, however, you see a confirmation like the following, please hit finish, you did it!:
You’re finished. If this is the first mail delivery method you’ve set up, it’ll show up like the following screenshot, and it’ll automatically set itself to be the default for all outbound emails (from ZBS).
From the main mail delivery page you can now Send Test or Remove for your new mail delivery method, or you can use ‘Add Another’ to setup more via the wizard you’ve used above.
