Hi Champs,

Today I am going to explain how to use the OOTB EXM feature from Sitecore 9XP.

EXM comes as preinstalled module in Sitecore 9, once you get the EXM running after Sitecore installation follows the below steps to set up the messaging.

Changes for CustomSMTP:

  1. After getting Sitecore EXM installed go to App_Config/Sitecore/EmailExperience folder.
  2. Find the config file called. “Sitecore.EDS.Providers.CustomSMTP.config”
  3. In this file please change the Server node value with the IP address for your SMTP server.
  4. Also, change the Port number for the same.

Changes for CustomSMTP Sync:

  1. After getting Sitecore EXM installed go to App_Config/Sitecore/EmailExperience folder.
  2. Find the config file called “Sitecore.EDS.Providers.CustomSMTP.Sync.config”
  3. In this file please change the Server node value with the IP address for your SMTP server.
  4. Also, change the Port number for the same.
