Sending email through the Nimbus Hosting platform

Although the Nimbus Hosting platform does not support email accounts using IMAP and POP there is still a local email service (Postfix) for sending email from your web site.

To configure your site to send email out directly from the server you can use the below two options:

1) In PHP you can use the mail() function or use the following path to send out via

> /usr/lib/sendmail

2) Or if you are configuring a contact form plug-in or similar for WordPress you can use the below email settings:

Host: localhost

Port: 25

Authentication: None

For best practice and better delivery results we recommend using a third party email relay service like SparkPost or Mandrill.
