With SMTP, you can

  • Ensure that your emails reach your students' inboxes without getting caught in spam filters.
  • Handle high volumes of emails efficiently as you have increasing email needs.
  • Protect your email communications with secure protocols like SSL/TLS.
  • Monitor email delivery with detailed logs and reports, helping you troubleshoot any issues.

What should I do if my SMTP emails are not being delivered? 

If you are experiencing deliverability issues, check your SMTP server settings and ensure they are correctly configured. Verify that your server is not blacklisted and that there are no connectivity issues. 

What should I do if my emails are marked as spam? 

To avoid spam, ensure that your email content does not trigger spam filters and that your domain is properly authenticated. As for the email content, avoid using too many exclamation marks, write all in capital letters, or do anything else that can be regarded as spam.
