IMAP Setting – specify the IMAP settings so we can track the replies to campaign sent from this email account.
Please note that you need to enable IMAP at your email account settings first. Here is an example for Gmail


Note! Before you save the settings you have entered, please check the validity of the entered data by clicking the Check button.

A connection to the test server will be established. If it was successful the Success icon will appear

If the settings were entered correctly, just save the settings and proceed to sending your messages.

It is possible to add multiple accounts to the list so that you can conveniently select the account you need to send emails from, although only one email account can be set as default. Email sending will be done through your default account.

Now you are ready to start your triggered email campaign.
