Configuring Mail Servers in TracCloud

TracCloud allows both anonymous, non-secure SMTP commutation as well as authenticated/secure SMTP messages. Office365 and Gmail mail servers are natively supported in addition to standard SMTP servers. Redrock Software can assist in setting up your mail server if preferred, instructions for both options can be found below. Alternatively, our Mail Server Service can be provided at an additional cost. Reach out to sales@go-redrock.com for more information.

  • Mail Host Address
The IP/address of your mail server.
Office365: smtp.office365.com (typically)
Gmail: smtp.gmail.com


  • Mail Host Port
The port number of your mail server.
Office365: 587
Gmail: 587


  • Use STARTTLS & Use TLS
Additional security options, typically enabled.
Office365: Both enabled

  • Mail Provider

  • Service Account Credentials
These are the credentials the Trac System will use to log into your mail server. Use Password and Use Username should be enabled if these credentials need to be utilized.


  • Override "From:" email address
The Trac System is capable of sending mail from more than one address. For example, a confirmation email might come from a 'noreply' email, while a consultant emailing a student could come from the consultant's personal email. This option is typically left blank, but in the event that your mail server can only send from one address, this can be used to override everything else.


  • Test Email Recipient
After filling out the rest of your mail settings, put your personal address here and click 'Test Mailserver.' If the configuration is correct, you will receive a test email, if not, a warning will appear giving some information on a possible issue.


If you're having any trouble with these settings, feel free to reach out to us at helpdesk@go-redrock.com or by submitting a helpdesk ticket. For more information on configuring automated email content, see our Profile Prefs Guide.
