Email is an important part of any business, from receiving or sending notifications to communicate with your customer. The E-mail Configuration section shows how to configure your mail ID to send e-mails.
By default, emails will be sent from no-reply@leadcenter.ai. If you need to send emails to your customer from your email account, you need to configure your email ID with other related information.

Pre-requisites for E-mail Configuration

Before you configure your email ID in LeadCenter.ai, you need to get the SMTP settings from your email provider. We have listed the configurations to be done for Gmail, Hotmail & Outlook, and Yahoo.
