Generate SMTP Credentials for a User

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) credentials are necessary to send email through Email Delivery. Each user is limited to a maximum of two SMTP credentials. If more than two are required, SMTP credentials must be generated on other existing users or more users must be created.

A security best practice is to generate SMTP credentials for a new user instead of your Console user that already has permissions assigned to it. For detailed instructions on creating a user, see Adding Users. The new user must be assigned to a group with permissions to manage approved-senders and suppressions. For example:

Allow group <group name> to use approved-senders in compartment <compartment name>
