Configuring Hello-Groom To Send Email

To configure Hello-Groom to send email, you'll need to go to Setup>Business Info>Email:

You will then need to look up the SMTP Server settings for your specific email account. If you are using a Gmail account, you can do a Google search for "Gmail SMTP Settings" without the quotations. You can do the same for Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail and more.

Once your email settings are entered, you can click the "Test email settings" button. If you entered your settings correctly AND they are the correct settings for your email provider, the test will succeed and send a test message to your inbox. If it fails, it will display an error log. This error log comes directly from your email providers server and not Hello-Groom. While our support can analyze the error for you and provide you info, we may not be able to correct it. 

When you have your email settings working, you can choose to copy additional email addresses on all emails sent from Hello-Groom, you can set the "CC box" as checked for all email functions. (This will make it so any email that goes out from Hello-Groom, copies the email addresses you have entered. 

Auto process appointment reminders enables the reminder system for Hello-Groom. This will send out the appointment reminders based on the # of days you have set below. 

Date last run shows the last date that appointment reminders were sent. 

Use default email program when sending emails from client card will open your computers default email application when you send an email from a client card (Outlook or Windows Mail etc.)

Reply to email address is if you want to have your clients reply to a different email address than the one used in the username field of your email settings. For example, in the image above, it shows the username as kennelconnectionemailtest@gmail.com. Emails from Hello-Groom will come from that address, but I want all replies to Hello-Groom emails going to info@ronspetboarding.com so I would enter info@ronspetboarding.com into the reply to email address field. 

The Grooming section for emails allows you to customize what you want sent out for certain actions including what info you want included in the confirmation emails. You may enable these options or leave them disabled.

Note: Due to Gmail's new security updates starting May 30th 2022, they will be removing access to third party applications for use of the Gmail accounts. To get around this, you will need to create an application specific password for your Gmail account using the following guide: Gmail 5.7.9 Application-specific password required (kennelconnection.com)
