Custom SMTP

You can use the Custom SMTP provider like Nodemailer to send transactional emails through your custom SMTP server to your customers using the Novu Platform with a single API.

Getting Started

To use the Custom SMTP channel, you will need to have your personal SMTP server configured and add host, port, user, password to the Custom SMTP integration on the Novu platform.

You can also provide value true for secure field if you want the connection to be secure, and if not, leave it empty.
