  2. Edit the default email address.
  3. Change the From Email Address to your details and click Save.
"Do not reply" <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

 

Mailer Settings

  2. Change the Mailer Throttle Time (in milliseconds) to reduce the load on the mail server. (e.g. 100 to send 10 emails per second).
