SMTP2GO is a paid email service for sending email. They do however have 1,000 free messages a month and paid plans that are reasonable.
- Sign up for the service
- After you confirm your email, sign in. You can create an smtp user at this screen or in the next step.
- Go to Settings > Users and create an smtp user or additional smtp users.
- You can set authentication by ip address. It’s a good idea to set the limit here also from Unlimited to match which plan you choose.
- Set the domain to your domain to make delivery seem as it came right from your own mail server. This can help sending to strict email domains.
- From your FusionPBX server install go to Advanced > Default Settings > Email section.
