Setting up the SMTP Settings for Outlook emails

What is the SMTP?

Daftra sends emails by default on behalf of its users through the email address “” to ensure messages successfully reach clients without being bounced back or rejected by the email server.

If you prefer to add your original email so that it becomes the sending and receiving email for all messages instead of sending via, you will need to configure the SMTP settings on the account.
