Kiwire uses email to send marketing, notification and other function thus Kiwire will require an mail server connection to send outgoing emails, SMTP setting will let you configure your organisation mail server configuration.
Please remember to ensure your SMTP allow connection from Kiwire server IP address.
The field and its function description is listed below.
Any services related to mail services will need to use different ports from 587,465 and 25 due to Google Cloud blocking those ports.
Alternative workaround suggestion:
To use mail services on Kiwire Cloud, users can opt to use API connection with third-party services such as Mailgun. Its free for 5000 outgoing mail per month, but will have additional charges if its more than 5000 outgoing mail in a month.
