How to set up a campaign with SMTP

👉 Create your single-stage campaign here:

In order to send your campaign this way, you will need an SMTP server. A large variety of these servers can be found online.

Start by following the steps for sending a regular campaign (single-stage)

In the third and last step, choose SMTP, and provide the information required to access your server (image below).

SMTP is not available for a multi-stage campaign. Learn about multi-stage campaigns: here.

So why use an SMTP server instead?

The number of emails you can send with Gmail and Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), over a 24 hour period is limited.

Gmelius campaigns can send a maximum of 1250 emails per-day if you're a Google Workspace customer or up to 250 emails per-day if you're a Gmail user ( or email address). Quotas are reset daily.

Gmelius' standard campaigns are therefore subject to this limit.

Using an SMTP server will increase this daily limit (depending on the service).
