SMTP Server Settings


Sending Emails with various servers can be a challenge. In this blog article we like to collect the settings needed for using our SendMail functions in FileMaker or CURLEmailMBS class in Xojo to send emails. As you see we always prefer to use encryption.

Bei checking certificates, we can detect and avoid giving our password to a transparent proxy. And we enable TLSv1.2 for all here and require encrypted connection. It's important to test and verify this, as I once run into a hotel reading my emails to count them and prevent spamming.

Domainfactory
Our provider domainfactory offers email servers which we use for sending our own emails.

For Gmail you need to allow less secure apps on website in your account settings.
I would recommend a separate gmail account for sending emails.
