For using the SMTP server, we only recommend using a dedicated SMTP service like,,, Amazon SES, etc. By using your own SMTP server you will be able to send emails for your business through Spotlightr.

Use this document as a guide for setting up the SMTP service, we have used Gmail as an example.

  • To set up your SMTP go to the SMTP SETTINGS available from your account settings (small wrench icon, next to your username):
  • Provide your SMTP credentials, fill in all mandatory fields and click on the button "TEST SMTP SETTINGS".
  1. Server Host Name/SMTP Server Address (Marked #1 above)
  2. Port Number/SMTP Server Port (Marked #2 above) 587
  3. SMTP Security/Encryption (Marked #3 above)
  • Default From Address is the Sender's Email
  • Username is the SMTP Username
  • Password is the SMTP Password
  • Now just click on "SAVE SMTP SETTINGS" and that's it.

All necessary settings for SendGrid can be collected from this page.
