Configuring email settings

The steps for Sellercloud’s Delta and Sellercloud’s original interface are slightly different. The directions are separated by interface below.

Both interfaces will ask you to provide your SMTP Server information. SMTP, or Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the standard means with which to transmit emails over the Internet. Learn more about SMTP Settings.

On both interfaces, you must check two different boxes at the bottom when configuring your settings. The boxes will read:

  • My Server requires SSL connection
  • My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication
These two settings must be enabled. If you receive a message reading The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated, then it is highly likely that either your SMTP credentials are incorrect or those two settings (or one of them) are not enabled.

You will be prompted to input the following information:

  • From Name: This refers to the name of your company, but it can be customized by simply entering a different name.
  • From Email: This is the email address you will be using to send emails.
  • Username and Password: This must match the From Email credentials.
  • SMTP Server and Port: Find your correct information here.

Understanding the Email Sent Log

The steps for Sellercloud’s Delta and Sellercloud’s original interface are slightly different. The directions are separated by interface below.

The Email Sent Log shows you a detailed history of all your email information. The log lets you review information like who sent an email, when an email was sent, if any errors occurred, and more. You can search for specific emails by date range, emailer, etc. to find specific email information. If an error ever does occur, you will receive an error message. You even have the option to preview old emails and download emails as EML files.

Blacklisting domains

You can configure your email settings so that no emails are sent to specified domains. This is referred to as blacklisting a domain, and it is especially helpful for a certain channels, like Amazon, Rakuten (formerly Buy.com), and Newegg. These channels restrict certain content in emails to customers, mainly content that can be seen as business solicitations. This restriction can extend to your web address as part of your signature. This is currently only available in Sellercloud’s original interface.
