Sending e-mails

When you want to send e-mails from the Kentico administration interface, you can:

  • Send an e-mail to a specific e-mail address in the E-mail queue application on the Send e-mail tab.
  • Send mass e-mail to selected users and roles in the Users application on the Mass e-mail tab.

Sending mass e-mail to selected users

E-mail queue

Sending of e-mails is facilitated by the E-mail queue application. It enables the system to send out, for example, newsletter issues to subscribers without the risk of losing any of the e-mails due to errors.

New e-mails registered in the queue are sent out automatically in regular intervals by the Send queued e-mails scheduled task. If an e-mail is not delivered to the SMTP server successfully, it remains in the queue so that you can delete or resend it manually later.

During the mail‑out, e‑mails in the queue are distributed to the SMTP servers defined in the system. See Configuring SMTP servers to learn how you can register and configure SMTP servers in Kentico.

Successfully sent e-mails are displayed on the Sent e-mails tab for the number of days specified by the Archive e-mails (days) option in Settings -> System -> E-mails.

You can configure the settings related to e-mails in Settings -> System -> E-mails in the E-mail processing section. See Settings - E-mails.
