Set up mail server and mail account

To define your email addresses in the logistics software and to set up your outgoing mail server for the first time, follow these instructions.

  1. Create mail server.
    1. Go to “Settings>Email>Mail Server” in the menu.
    2. In the table you can see all mail servers that have been created. The server “udag.de” is stored as standard. Nevertheless, you should use your own mail server.
    3. Click on “New” in the toolbar to create a new mail server.
    4. Fill in the fields of the following fields according to the specifications of your mail provider. If you do not want to receive emails with Logistiqo, do not enter any data in “Incoming server (POP3)” and “POP3 port” and leave the fields blank.
      1. Incoming mail server (POP3)
      2. POP3 Port
      3. Outgoing mail server (SMTP)
      4. SMTP (Port)
      5. SSL or TLS
    5. Then save the newly created mail server by clicking on “Save” in the toolbar.
  2. Create mail account.
    1. Go to “Settings>Email>Mail account” in the menu. Here you create one or more different mail addresses under the mail server. A mail account is already defined by default, but you should still use your own mail account. To do this, click “New” in the toolbar.
    2. Define the following fields:
      1. Mail Server: Select the mail server that you created earlier in the drop-down.
      2. User: User name of the mail account (for many providers, the user name is the same as the mail address).
      3. Email: Email address of your email account.
      4. Name: Displayed name when sending mail, e.g. “First name Last Name”.
      5. Password: Password of your mail account.
    3. Save the created email account by clicking on “Save” in the toolbar.
    4. You can then check the created mail account or the entries. To test the outbox, click on “Send test mail” and to test the inbox click on “Read inbox”.
  3. Assign mail account to user.
    1. Go to “System>User” in the menu.
    2. In the table, select a user for whom you want to store the mail accounts.
    3. In the drop-down “Mail account SMTP” you can assign the user an email address for the outbox. In the drop-down “Mail account IMAP/POP3” you assign the user an email address for the inbox.
