Bulk Email Express Get Started Help

How to set Bulk Email Express Software to use your SMTP server to send out your emails?

To be able to send hundreds of messages you must configure your program.

For your outgoing messages you must have an SMTP server address or an IP address. We recommend our users to use an SMTP server address. An SMTP server is the type of server used to send your emails. If possible, copy your settings from your existing E-mail client program (such as Outlook).

We recommend you to use your Internet Service Provider's (ISP) SMTP server address. You may however use any SMTP server you have access to. (Most people find it useful to use the same settings in their Email client if possible).

Several methods of transmission are suggested: “Send via SMTP servers”, “Use third party pick up service to deliver” and “Send directly”.

First Method: Send via SMTP Server Address

  1.  On the left Panel, click on the "Settings" tab then select "Use SMTP Server". The program offers this option by default. Click "Add or Edit SMTP Servers".

  2. To set up your sending method, click on the "Add or Edit SMTP Servers" button. The "SMTP Server Settings" dialog box will be displayed.

  3. To add an SMTP server address, you need to click on the “Add” button. In the field “Outgoing Mail Server Address (SMTP) or IP”, enter the address of your server (e.g. smtp10.bell.ca). If you don’t know the address of your server, contact your Internet service provider (ISP) or your technical support department. They will be able to provide you the right information. Bulk Email Express offers a list of providers and server addresses all over the world. To consult the list, go to visit our Web site (www.bulkemailexpress.com).
  4. 4) If you use a secure server you must check the box "Use SSL Port". If your server is NOT a secure address then you should NOT check this box.
  5. Port: port 25 is the default port for the majority of the SMTP server addresses.
  6. In the field "SSL Mode", choose "Dedicated SSL Port (Connect) " if your SMTP server is a SSL server.
  7. The rest of the form can remain as it is. If you are using a secured server, see the section that deals with “Configuration of a SMTP Secured Server”.
  8. Click on the “Ok” button to close the dialog box and to save the data.
  9. See if the configuration is well done – For the test, add your email address in the contact list – If this address was not in the list…Click “Add New Contact” button from the taskbar.
  10. On the contact form, enter your email address in the first field and click "Ok" button to save and close the dialog box.
  11. Enter the sender’s information. Click "+" button to add your information. See the screenshot below.

    When sending an email, your name will be displayed in the “From” field of the outgoing message. You can enter any email address or name in this section. Enter your name (e.g.: Mike Tyson or Email Marketing Bulk Email Express Inc., etc.) as you want it to appear.

  12. Add a subject in the subject field (e.g. Email Marketing Software & SEO Services).
  13. Create or import a message in the message editor. You can also use a template for your newsletter.

  14. Compose and save your message. From the “File” menu, select “Save the E-Mail Message As...”. The “Save…” dialog box will be displayed. Give a name to your mailing list (e.g.: E-mail blaster software) and click on the “Save” button.
  15. From the taskbar, click on the “Send” button in order to send the message to yourself.

  16. On the left Panel, you have to look up on the “Contact Lists & E-Mail Editor” tab under the Status column for the sending progress. When an email is sent correctly you will see the message "Send With Success…". If you don’t receive this message, it means that your message was not delivered, and you should review the configuration. Make sure that you have the right information. Once the email is sent, Bulk Email Express has no control over the delivery time.
  17. Give the server a few minutes to deliver the message. If you receive the message in your Inbox it means that the program is properly configured and you're ready to send bulk emails.

    To remove a server address, you only need to select the address on your list and to click “Delete” button.

    To cancel, just click “Cancel” button. If you click “Cancel”, your data will not be saved.

Note:

If you are sending messages but they do not show up on the inbox…so check the following:

  1. Double check the settings & the email addresses.
  2. Verify that you don’t have a firewall or antivirus like Norton or McAfee that are blocking your outgoing messages.
  3. Be patient.  Usually the message delivery is instant, but we've seen where the ISP has delayed the delivery of a message for hours.
