During the Simwood Partner sign up process we will need to configure access to an email account with SMTP enabled so that we are able to sent notification emails on your behalf (for example: Password resets).
We strongly recommend you use a unique account for this purpose (this will enable you to, for example, configure it only for outbound use).
Most mail/hosting providers will have their own guide on how to configure a mail client with SMTP and all of the information we ask for should be available in the common "set up a mail client" option.
For example, a common configuration for Office365 may look like this:
Server name: smtp.office365.com
Encryption method: STARTTLS
The username and password being the same login you use for webmail.
