Hey there! 👋
You can use the SMTP of your choice to send emails with Mailmodo. Here's a step-by-step guide for setting up your sender domains and SMTP in Mailmodo.
1. On the Homepage, click on Settings to access Sender Settings, next add New Sender
3. Enter the sender mail address which you want to use to send the emails from. Next, choose the type of SMTP you want to use and configure it.
You can choose any SMTP to configure with Mailmodo and use it to send your emails. There are a number of quick options available to set up SMTPS. Here's a quick walk-through on configuring various kinds of SMTPs.
a. Configuring Mailmodo SMTP
If the domain hasn't been previously used for email marketing, and as a result isn't registered with any SMTP such as AWS, Sendgrid, or Pepipost, you may go ahead with Mailmodo SMTP.
💡 Here's a step-by-step guide for adding a sender email with Mailmodo SMTP.
b. Configuring AWS SES, Sendgrid, and Pepipost SMTPs
If your domain is already registered with an SMTP other than Mailmodo, you can choose to select that SMTP. If you are using either AWS SES, Pepipost, or Sendgrid SMTPs you can select the corresponding SMTP and go ahead with configuring it.
💡 Here are the links to the step-by-step guides to help you configure these SMTPs:
c. Configuring a Custom SMTP
You may also configure your Sender Settings using any SMTPs other than the ones mentioned above. For this first enter your sender ID then choose the 'Custom SMTP' option and click on 'Continue'.
To configure a Custom SMTP you will need to enter the SMTP Name, SMTP Username, SMTP Password, Host, and Port details in the next step as shown below.
5. Updating DKIM, DMARC & SPF records
If the sender has configured the domain with Mailmodo's SMTP, they will need to enter the generated DKIM, DMARC, and SPF records into their domain records.
💡 Here's a quick guide for updating DNS Settings to your domain records.
Note that, if the domain is already configured with another SMTP, this step isn't required.
6. Whitelisting your domain for AMP approval
Once domain records have been updated, you need to whitelist your domain for AMP approval. For this you will have to fill the a whitelisting form and submit it for approval.
Once this form is filled, a mail is automatically sent on your behalf to Google for AMP approval. The approval process from Google usually takes 4-5 days. Once the mail address has been whitelisted for AMP by Google, you're all set to send out dynamic AMP email campaigns through Mailmodo.
