Use Other Providers for System Mail

You can choose from several supported mail providers to handle mail for your WHMCS installation. Make sure to choose the mail provider that offers the best service and security features for you.

Your mail provider configuration is separate from any email piping or importing that you configure for your support departments. For more information, see Email Piping and Email Importing.

  1. In the Admin Area, go to the Mail tab at Configuration () > System Settings > General Settings.

    Configure Mail Provider in the Mail tab
  3. Select your desired mail provider.
