DocumentationE-mail > How do I send e-mails?

By default Ploi installs sendmail, but this is not configured. (We are in the process of making a e-mail server type available specially ment for sending and receiving e-mails)

You can however use sendmail, it is most likely that your e-mails will end up in the users spam folder or even not get delivered at all. There are a lot of articles around to configure a mail server properly but it is a very intensive and long-time taking job to set this up. Besides that it is hard to say if you will be able to built up a good reputation from the address you are sending from and getting your own guarantee that e-mails will get delivered.

Therefore we have created this article to give you suggestions and help you out with e-mailing.
