Amelia WordPress Booking Plugin Notification Settings

Use these mail settings to notify your customers and employees.

Mail Service

Three different mail services can be used to send email notifications to your customers and employees:

  • PHP Mail (not recommended) – This option is selected by default for users that do not want to configure other mail services.

Please note: We strongly recommend changing mail service setting to SMTP or Mailgun because email that is sent with PHP Mail generally gets flagged as spam by mail servers and also can take some time to send. See below how to configure SMTP and Mailgun mail services.

  • SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) – In this article, we show how to configure SMTP mail service for Gmail, but you can set it up for any other outgoing service that supports SMTP for a mail client. When you select this option, four inputs will appear – you need to populate them in to configure SMTP properly. A Google SMTP example:
    • SMTP Host – smtp.gmail.com
    • SMTP Port – 465 (SSL) or 587 (TLS)
    • SMTP Username – Your Gmail address
    • SMTP Password – Your Gmail password

    For Gmail, it is also necessary also to turn on the “Allow less secure apps” option in your Gmail account.

  • Mailgun – Powerful APIs that enable you to send, receive, and track emails effortlessly.
    To set up Mailgun, you need to populate the Mailgun API Key and Mailgun Domain input fields that appear when selecting Mailgun as your mail service.

Default: PHP Mail

Sender Name

This option’s value will be used as the sender name string in all email notifications that will be sent to your customers and employees.

Sender Email

This option’s value will be used as the sender email address in all email notifications that will be sent to your customers and employees.

Notify the customer(s) by default

This setting allows you to choose whether “Notify the customer(s)” checkbox in the appointment modal will be enabled or disabled by default. If you disable this option, you will still be able to notify the customers by checking “Notify the customer(s)” checkbox in the edit appointment modal in the admin area.

Default: Enabled

Successful Cancellation Redirect URL

This is where you enter the URL your customers will be redirected to if they successfully cancel the appointment by clicking the cancel URL in the email.

Unsuccessful Cancellation Redirect URL

This is where you enter the URL your customers will be redirected to if they unsuccessfully cancel the appointment by clicking the cancel URL in the email.
