If you plan on integrating an email system into your DotNetNuke website, then it will be helpful to understand SMTP authentication and how to set it up for DotNetNuke. Read on for an overview.

What is SMTP Authentication?

SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, and it has long been the security standard for email transmission across IP networks. It runs on its own port (typically TCP port 25), and is SSL secured in the overwhelming majority of cases. You may notice alternatives to SMTP, like the Post Office Protocol (POP) or the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP). You will most likely be working with SMTP settings for your DotNetNuke website.

Common SMTP Settings for DNN

SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, and it has long been the security standard for email transmission across IP networks.

With all DotNetNuke websites, SMTP authentication is required before use of the SMTP server. For most DNN accounts, you only need to select “Basic” under “SMTP Authentication” and fill in your user SMTP Username and SMTP Password, and you’ll be ready to go. If you’re unsure, you can get the SMTP server address through your email provider. As a rule of thumb, however, the “SMTP” query corresponds to your email domain name, and your user name will be the address that proceeds your domain name.
