Send all emails to guests, including confirmation and reminder emails, from your own custom email address.
Note: To ensure that emails are successfully delivered to guests (and to avoid spam folders), sending emails from a custom email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org will require verification in Resova and some changes to DNS records on your domain name. This process will authorize and provide permission to Resova to send emails on behalf of your custom email address. We recommend that those with experience in DNS records continue with the following instructions. Alternatively, you can contact your hosting provider for assistance or reach out to our technical support team, who will be happy to help.
DMARC policies restrict Resova from sending emails on behalf of the following email clients:
- Google (@gmail.com)
- Hotmail (@hotmail.com, @live.com, @msn.com, @outlook.com)
- Yahoo (@yahoo.com)
To use a custom 'From Email' Address, we recommend you use your own domain name extension such as "email@example.com" or "firstname.lastname@example.org".
If you cannot provide one of these emails, please use the default option we provide.
Adding a custom email address to Resova
To use your own custom email address, select 'Settings' and then 'Emails & Messaging' from the main navigation. Click 'General Email Settings' in the settings menu on the left.
