SMTP settings

SMTP settings are to help make sure your email sending is trusted by different providers, e.g. gmail and hotmail. We provide SMTP settings so that you have no limitations on the emails you send through the site.

The reason Limecube limit the number of emails sent per hour is due to the fact we cannot control what each user uses their web forms for. By limiting the number of emails sent, it makes sure no one can abuse Limecube which in turn benefits the users who are doing the right thing. However please note, while we do have limitations sent per hour, the number we set is more than generous for the average site.

The technical explanation:

SMTP settings are simply your Outgoing Mail Server settings. "SMTP" stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. It's a set of communication guidelines that allow software to transmit email over the Internet. Most email software is designed to use SMTP for communication purposes when sending email that only works for outgoing messages. There are two other protocols, POP3 and IMAP, which are incoming settings used for retrieving and storing email. Both of these settings are often required to properly set up any mail client so that it may communicate with your host's mail server.
