From WHMCS Documentation




For information regarding emails and messages in WHMCS refer to this page.

Mail Type

Choose how emails are sent by your installation:

  1. Use PHP mail() function to send emails from inside WHMCS. This requires no further configuration, but some email providers may treat email sent this way with increased suspicion.
  2. SMTP uses your SMTP server to send emails, it has lower performance, but is generally seen as less likely to be spam. The related "SMTP" fields below it are required.

SMTP Port

In this field, specify on which port your SMTP server operates. This will usually vary depending upon the SMTP SSL Type option selected below and your particular mail server configuration. Please check with your mail server administrator the appropriate port to use, but here are the most commonly used ports by SSL type:

  • None: 25 or 26
  • SSL: 465 or 587
  • TLS: 587

SMTP SSL Type

Use this option to specify whether a secure connection is used when communicating with your mail server or not. Changes to this option will usually also require the SMTP port option to be changed above.
