Using 3rd party SMTP to send notification emails from NiceLabel Control Center

Official translation unavailable. Translate this page with Google:

Problem

NiceLabel Control Center allows you to send notification emails for each change in the document approval process. The person responsible for the next workflow step receives a message that contains:

  • Summary of actions taken in the previous workflow step

  • Link to the document with changed status

To enable sending notification emails, configure Control Center to use an outbound mailing system that sends emails on behalf of NiceLabel Control Center. We refer to such mail server as an outbound mail server or SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server.

The selected SMTP server might be the same server that your company uses for internal mailing purposes or an SMTP server provided by your Internet Service Provider. You can also configure NiceLabel Control Center to use third-party SMTP servers, such as Google SMTP server.
