The Multiple SMTP app in Simply CRM allows you to add multiple SMTP servers to your Simply instance. By configuring multiple SMTP servers, this extension lets you customize your messages and communicate with your contacts using a variety of email accounts.
This way, you can separate your marketing and sales messages from support emails or allow your employees to send emails from their personalized company accounts. Thanks to Multiple SMTP, each user in your instance of Simply CRM will be able to add their own custom email address and send emails directly from Simply CRM.
However, Multiple SMTP doesn’t just help you better organize your messaging, they allow you to collect more precise data for your marketing campaigns.
In addition, using multiple email addresses can reduce the risk of your message ending up in the user’s spam folder, which helps increase your open rates.
