Select the website that you will be using from the drop down menu for which you want the campaign. Choose a name for the campaign, choose the name/email address from which you want the emails to be sent.
Choose "From Email:" and "Reply to Email:" For example if your website is buyusedcars.com you can create the email email@example.com. Type the email onto the correct field. You can use also SMTP mail server. If you wish to use it, tick "Enable SMTP." Usually the SMTP server is mail.yourdomain.com. For the example given here it will be mail.buyusedcars.com.
