Sending User Notification Emails using your own Email Server

In Outgrow you now have the option to send Notification Emails to the users once they submit their details using your own server and not Outgrow's server. You just need to add SMTP credentials for your server in Outgrow, and then activate the SMTP configuration. Once the SMTP setting is enabled all the emails to your users will be sent from your own server.
