I am looking into automating a lot of my accounting work now and one of the things that I am looking into is Emailing Invoices.
- If I have understood the documentation correctly, one cannot schedule emailing invoices? Is this correct?
Enter your own Email address. Entering an address here will not change the address from which the email is sent. But the new address will be shown as a “reply-to” address.
- Is this correct? Where do you put the email address where the email is sent from or does manager use the username as the email address sent from and this field above is just the reply email address? If so, I would recommend that this field be called Reply or NO-reply Email Address
For security reasons, Manager does not support port 465. Begin by trying port 587. Most SMTP servers will support both ports, so this should generally not be an issue.
- @lubos what security reasons would this be? My own investigation of using Port 465 versus 587 lead me to conclude that Port 465 SSL is actually more secure than Starttls on the grounds that Port 465 starts and ends encrypted, but Starttls actually starts unencrypted and upgrades the connection to encrypted. I think a lot of the confusion comes from the assumption that people think that Port 465 only uses SSL, but it can be secured using TLS.
