Fraudulent emails are everywhere nowadays. Also, it is a fact that some of the automated emails can look fake. 

As a recruiter, the purpose of relying on a recruitment automation platform is to streamline the recruitment process. And automation is an integral part of it.

Skillate allows you to set up automated emails for various scenarios. The emails are sent with a custom 'from' address. Every time you will have to add your organization name as the title or in the sender’s email address to avoid confusion from the receivers’ side.

However, the good news is, you can also set up one email address and sender name for all your automated emails. It adds authenticity to your emails. 

The solution here is SMTP integration. To set up the SMTP connection, you will need to configure your mail sending settings in Skillate.
