You can select the Sending mode for email channels to determine the From address of messages sent from eDesk.

This help file will guide you through the different Sending Modes available and what they mean.

Before you start

  • You’ll need an Admin login to eDesk. If you don’t have an Admin login, you can request one from an Admin user within your business.

01 Different Sending Modes

Go to Settings → Mailbox Settings → Channels → select the channel → Mailbox tab → Sending mode.

From there, you will see all the sending modes available within your eDesk account.

02 Send directly from the channel's eDesk address

This uses the channel email address as the From address.

03 Send from own email address via SMTP

This sends messages via the email client-server i.e. if you connect a Gmail account, eDesk connects to Gmails’ SMTP server to send the message.

Enter the mail provider's Host, Connection type, Port, and your username and password, and the From email address will show as your email address.

This setup would be recommended when using your own Customer Support email with eDesk.

04 Send from your own email address via eDesk

This sends an email showing your address but using eDesk servers.

The From name and email address will show as My Company.
