The SMTP feature is available for the Individual plan or higher. With this feature, you can send notifications on submissions without the address appearing as the sender in the body of the email.

1. Go to the Notifications section of your form and in the left-side panel, under the Options subsection tick Use your own SMTP server. Next click on Set up an SMTP server.

Note: For Gmail, you can either set the protocol on Auto or SSL.

3. Once you have acquired the code, copy it and paste it in the verification code box, back in 123FormBuilder. Click on Validate and changes will be automatically applied in your notification settings. From now on, all notifications will be sent through your SMTP server, namely, the sender will no longer be 123FormBuilder, but the email address you have assigned in SMTP Options.
