How do I change the server my shopping cart uses to send emails?

When the shopping cart sends an email it uses an SMTP server to do so. The shopping cart has two options on what server it uses to send such emails. The first option is to use the default server set up in your PHP settings, and the second one is to define your own to use. If you would like to change these settings then please follow the steps below.
  1. Make sure you are logged in to the control panel of your shopping cart. Then click the blue Settings link at the top of the page to make a drop down menu appear.
  2. In the drop down menu click the Store Settings link.
  3. When the page loads scroll down to the section called Email Settings.
  4. In this section you will find a label called Use SMTP Server where the settings needed to use the SMTP server of choice is located.
  5. If you would like to use the default SMTP server defined in your PHP settings then make sure the radio button for Use my default mail settings is selected. If you would like to define a different SMTP server to use then select the radio button for Let me specify my own SMTP server details. If you chose the option to specify your own SMTP server then some more settings will become available below the radio button.
  6. Fill in the necessary settings in the text boxes below the radio button so that the shopping cart knows where to find the SMTP server, and has the proper credentials to use this server.
