    I'm trying to set up email in AdminCP

    I'm not sure what to put in where the arrow points. Also, when I use the settings above to test out email, Diagnostics gave me the following error:

    I have a python script that tests the credential being used and the mail server settings. And the script can send out test emails through SMTP SSL on port 465.

    Please help.

      We figured it out. Webmaster email address has to be the same as SMTP User Name.
