It is not necessary to check your usual email client software because the email was sent by Ancestris.

If Ancestris fails to send the email, you will get a message like this for instance, where we have here an unsuccessful connection to the smtp server.

If the mail does not reach its destination, you should receive an mail in your inbox a few minutes later telling you something like: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender.

Customization

Prior to sending emails to us, the outgoing mail configuration corresponding to your internet service provider must be defined in Ancestris preferences.

You are asked for these settings the first time you try to contact us, or by going to the preferences, Extensions panel, Support tab.

You define the outgoing email parameters in the fields provided.

The smtp server of your Internet Service Provider is the one you put in your email client software to send messages, not to receive them.
