What Are Email Settings Used For?
The Email Settings in CAKE allow your company to use a custom Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) email relay server for sending all email communications from your CAKE system, including transactional emails to partners regarding their account and campaigns as well as alerts for administrative users and affiliates to receive real-time updates about traffic patterns and more.

Mail Server Password: The Password of the account for the username
Mail Server Port Number: The Port on your SMTP server to send an email, e.g. 25, 465, 587 or 8080
Mail Server Use SSL: Tick the box if your mail server requires a secure transmission
