In this tutorial we walk you through step by step how to setup the email system in DotNetNuke 7.
This will enable DotNetNuke to send emails for instance when a user registers on your website or for instance if you need to send a newsletter to all the registered users on your website.
The email settings are actually called SMTP server settings and the settings you’ll need to use vary upon who has issued your email account.
We show you the most common SMTP settings and demonstrate how to set up your email if you have a Gmail account or an email account from PowerDNN.
