Until now, when receiving emails from your static site, the only option was for the email to be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
That changes today!
We are happy to announce that you now have the option to send emails via your own SMTP server 🎉
That means you can now customize the “from” email address by sending emails from your own custom domain instead of the one provided by Strattic (bye bye email@example.com, hello firstname.lastname@example.org). This will make it easier for your team and your site’s users to identify emails from your site.
This feature works with Strattic’s native support for CF7, Gravity Forms and Elementor forms.
There are many SMTP servers available to use. For businesses that send a large number of emails per day, a paid service is recommended.
You might want to consider these options:
If you are already using Gmail, Google Workspace, Outlook.com or Microsoft 365 to power your email, you can use their SMTP servers to send your email.
Just be sure to consider the send limits for each of these services and if they meet your needs.
You can find a step-by-step guide in our help center for details on how to set this up.
