SMTP and Gmail

Connect your TestFairy account to your Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), G-suite Gmail service, or private Gmail account to increase deliverability and open rates of email messages sent to system users.

This way, your users get emails from a familiar email address and can reply directly to you. In addition, you are able to track outgoing messages by checking your Sent Items folder in your email account.

This option is recommended for all users and is included in all packages.
