Many web hosted email services prohibit their users from accessing SMTP settings and will not allow the use of this feature.These settings are accessed by clicking the User Icon at the top-right corner of your screen when logged into an administrator user on your account.Adding your Email Server Settings to your account will allow you to use your Email Server to send the Notification and Confirmation Emails from your Formstack Forms.This is an excellent way to help ensure email receipt and customize the sending email address.The important point to note is that the sending and receiving of emails depends heavily on both the server where your Word Press installation is hosted and the email configuration of the local computer where the emails are supposed to be received.
This will require you to provide the ‘Email From’ Value, SMTP Host Address, SMTP Port Number, SMTP Username, and SMTP Password.
Most SMTP servers with SSL/TLS enabled use port 465 as a default, but you will need to contact your Email Server Administrator/Provider to ensure that you have the correct Port Number.
These are the credentials with which we will authenticate to your server and send these emails.

Though the Contact Form 7 (CF7) plugin successfully sends millions of emails every day, there are a host of issues that can delay or stop emails on both the sending and receiving ends of a typical email.
