  • How can I view and manage the existing sending server?

The front page of “Sending Servers” from the main navigations will show you sending servers you currently have in your system. Let’s see what information is available.

Manage Server Groups

Every sending server belongs to a specific group you’ve assigned while setting it up. The table follows a tree view of displaying the information, where sending servers are listed under their specific group. Here is how you can manage the sending groups.

Edit the Server Group

You can create the edit button, the first from the left to edit the name of a specific server group you want to.

Delete Group and Move Servers

Every sending server has to be a part of some group, therefore, you can’t just delete a group without managing what to do with the servers assigned to this specific group. The middle delete button will delete the group, and pop-up an option on your screen to select another group to move the existing servers.

Delete Group and Sending Servers

If you don’t want to keep the group and the sending servers either, select this option to delete both the group and the sending servers in it.

Manage Sending Server

Under every group there listed sending servers belong to it. Here in the following area, we are discussing the information rows under each column that are displaying with regard to the sending servers.

  • ID– Every record has been assigned a unique ID within the system
  • Name– Name that you’ve provided to the sending server while setting it up
  • Type– It has to be one of the currently available types of servers you can connect to, PHP Mail, SMTP or ESP.
  • Speed– There were two options for you to select the preferred one for a specific server entry between keeping the sending limit to “Unlimited” or limiting it by selecting the “Limited” option and defining Hourly/Daily sending speed.
  • Sent– The counter shows the number of emails a specific server has sent so far.
