Why use SMTP or Google for Sending Emails?

Modified on Wed, 05 Jul 2023 at 11:20 AM

SMTP or Google provides a method by which an application (such as Pet Sitter Plus) can send emails via your personal or your business email service.

Google, and most email providers, support connecting in this way, but you will need to confirm that your email provider supports SMTP so you can connect your Pet Sitter Plus account with your personal or your business email service.

Once you have configured SMTP or configured Googleyou will have more email options available to you, for example you will be able to send emails for the purpose of marketing or general communication via your business or personal email.

Most email services support SMTP (which stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol).


Tip: You can connect your Gmail or GSuite email account without using SMTP. See Connect your Email using Gmail and Google for instructions on how to do this.


Tip: Connecting your Personal or Business Email to Pet Sitter Plus by SMTP or Google provides enhanced functionality. You will be able to bulk email your Clients from the Client Search page as well as bulk email from the Vaccinations Report and Pet Birthday Reports. You will also be able to bulk email your staff.
