  1. Open the Admin Console.
  2. In the Email Services section, click Outbound Email.

    You see the Outbound Email page.

    Hostname smtp.example.com This is the name of the SMTP(S) host server.
    Encoding UTF-8 This is the email encoding type. The default is UTF-8.
    Editable Sender Address   This check box enables the From field in outbound emails to be edited to differ from the Default Sender's Address.
