Mail Provider Integrations

From WHMCS Documentation

WHMCS's mail provider integrations offer the choice of several configuration options, allowing you to take advantage of more service-specific features and advanced security.

  • Microsoft is available in WHMCS 8.6 and later and supports all Microsoft Azure®-compatible email services.
  • Google, Mailgun, SendGrid, and SparkPost are available in WHMCS 8.0 and later.
  • PHP mail and SMTP are available in all versions of WHMCS.

How Do I Configure My Mail Provider?

You can configure your mail provider in the Mail tab at Configuration () > System Settings > General Settings.

To configure Microsoft, you will need to create an app in the Microsoft Azure® console and configure the mail provider in the Mail tab at Configuration () > System Settings > General Settings.

If you use WHMCS's Google or Microsoft® integrations, you get the full benefit of those services' additional features, including OAuth2, which provides more security than traditional username-and-password authentication.

Security and OAuth2

OAuth2 is a technology that authorizes apps or services like WHMCS to access another service, such as a Gmail account. It's more secure than traditional username-and-password authentication. In addition to its security benefits, some mail providers require OAuth or have announced a requirement for it in the future.

How Do I Configure Services for Email Importing?

WHMCS supports POP3/IMAP, Microsoft, or Google service providers for email importing. Email importing is distinct from your WHMCS installation's mail provider.

You can configure email importing when you create or update a support department at Configuration () > System Settings > Support Departments.
