  6. You will have four options:
    1. Let Solatech Focus send email for me
    2. Use my Gmail account 
    3. Use my Office 365 account
    4. Use an SMTP account
  7. For email that is not Gmail or Office 365, select the fourth option

  8. Click the SMTP Presets button - you will have the option to select SMTP presets for most common email providers (if you do not know you email provider, check with your Account Administrator)
  9. Enter your email address in the Sender email address box
  10. Enter your email address in the User name box
  11. Enter your password in the password box
  12. Send a test message to insure everything is setup properly
  13. Click Apply to save your changes.
Helpful Tip: If you receive an error message "0" when trying to send the test email, the most likely cause is an incorrect email password.  To check and see if this is the issue, try logging into your email online, using the same password you have entered into Solatech.
