Setting up your email using SMTP - All Methods


Fileflare allows you to connect your own email address to allow Fileflare to send download emails using your email address. There are two methods of doing this:

SMTP - Connecting your email directly to Fileflare using SMTP to allow Fileflare to send emails using your account.
SendGrid SMTP API - Connect your email to SendGrid, then connect SendGrid to Fileflare using SMTP. This is easier to set up, and provides ways to get better email deliverability.

You cannot use an alias email using SMTP. You must use a real email address because SMTP requires a direct connection. If you want to use an alias, please use the SendGrid SMTP API method.
