Sending recipes by e-mail: one size fits all
I receive from time to time the following inquiry from Shop’NCook users:
“What are my e-mail settings?”
E-mail settings depend on your ISP (internet service provider). You need to find out your ISP’s SMTP server address, the server port number, if authentication and SSL are required… Sometimes, I can figure the settings out by doing a Google search, sometimes it is harder.
If you are not sure of your e-mail settings or have trouble getting the send function to work, you should first ask your ISP. Or…
… you can consider the alternative solution below:
Why don’t you open a GMail account?
A GMail account takes just a couple of minutes to set up and will insure you can send e-mails from anywhere. Plus, it will keep a copy of all the messages you send – including those sent with Shop’NCook. And I can tell you exactly the settings to use with Shop’NCook, because I have one too!
Open a GMail account, if you don’t have one already, by following the link below:
Input the following settings in the Email tab of Shop’NCook Preferences:
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
From: your e-mail address…
To: some e-mail address to which you want to send by default…
Server port: 465
User name: firstname.lastname@example.org
Password: your gmail account password
Step 3. (optional)
GMail changes by default the From e-mail address to your GMail address. To avoid this, you can set your default address in your GMail account to your main e-mail address.
Important note: if above settings don’t work, restart Shop’NCook and try again.
