  2. Finally, click on the ‘Save’ button.

Verifying the SMTP Configuration

Acquire gives you the option to test your SMTP setup immediately after configuration. Verify if emails are dispatched from the server by sending a test email to yourself. To test your SMTP, go to Settings > Email Setup and select the SMTP tab.

First, click on the three dots (‘...’) beneath the ‘Action’ heading. Select ‘Send Test Email’ from the drop-down menu.



Enter your email address as the recipient in the SMTP Email field.


Finally, click ‘Send Email’.

You will be notified once the test email is successfully sent. An email should also appear in the specified inbox.
