Custom SMTP

Premium users have the ability to send emails that go out from the Gleam platform via their own SMTP provider such as SendGrid or Mailgun.

Applications that support Custom SMTP:

  • Competitions
  • Rewards

Custom SMTP is configured at the global Site level. You can find Custom SMTP settings under Site Settings > Advanced > Custom SMTP

You can configure:

  • SMTP Address
  • From Domain
  • Username
  • Password
  • Authentication
  • From Address
  • Reply-to Address

Most of these settings will be supplied by your email provider once you set up an SMTP user.

Custom SMTP will replace any emails that Gleam sends with your own provider. This includes:

  • Competition Post Entry Emails
  • Competition Subscriber Emails
  • Rewards Post Redeem Emails

Prefilling User Details

Sometimes you may want to prefill user details within the Gleam widget to prevent users from having to enter details twice. This may be if a user is already logged into your website, or if you're redirecting users to a Gleam widget after completing another form first.
