How can I use my own SMTP settings with EverWeb's contact form?

The Contact Form Advanced in EverWeb 2.1 lets you use your own SMTP settings to send email which significantly improves the chances that you will properly receive form submissions.

Important: To help improve reliablity of your contact form, use the same SMTP settings for the email address you want the form submissions to go to.

Your SMTP options are provided by your web hosting provider and are the same settings you use in your email client to send emails. There are 2 options you can use;

1. EverWeb + Hosting email account
2. Your web hosting providers SMTP details (you must verify your settings with them)

  2. Verify your SMTP settings with your web hosting provider
