Before your site can send emails - receipts, admin notifications, contact requests, etc - you must give the software your SMTP information. This info is usually obtained from your host, though some hosts do not provide email services. In that case, you can use your business ISP's mail services, Google's mail service, etc.

Your store needs email to send receipts, admin new order notices, distributor notifications and password resets. The Forgot Password feature on login pages is visible and available only if your storefront is properly configured to send email.
There's more than one way to do it... This article will outline the setup procedures.
In the AspDotNetStorefront admin console, go to Configuration > Site Setup Wizard and click the Configure Email link.
In the AspDotNetStorefront admin console, go to Configuration > Setup E-mail.
This page lets you set up and test your email settings to verify that everything is working properly for your outgoing emails. Enter the necessary values and click the test button, and the store will attempt to send outgoing mail. If everything goes well you'll see a message indicating success. If there is a problem, the store will attempt to display any error messages returned by the mail server.
If you receive an error message from the mail server, you will need to contact whoever maintains that mail server for assistance with correcting your email settings. AspDotNetStorefront cannot advise you on what to change.
Clicking Send Test saves the entered values to the AspDotNetStorefront Settings (see below).
Note - there is 'validation' on this page. Once you enter email settings into the required fields, then removing them will cause an error message and your changes will not be saved. Use 'Manual Configuration' to resolve this, if you need to.
AspDotNetStorefront cannot determine if these are necessary for you or provide any assistance with setting them up. Contact your host/IT department for assist with this.
