Email Settings

Every Backendless backend includes email settings which are used any time an email must be delivered on behalf of the application. The scenarios when an email is sent are:

  • Application is configured to confirm email address for user registration.
  • User requests password change/recovery.
  • Application uses the API to send an email.

The default email settings can be changed using Backendless console:

  1. Login to Backendless Console.
  2. Select an app.
  3. Click Manage, then scroll down to Email Settings on the App Settings screen.
  4. Fill out the form with the SMTP server information

  6. Port - The port number the SMTP server accepts requests on.
  7. From - The Name which will appear in the From field of the sent out emails.
