How It Works
When you send an email to someone using Eagle (e.g., from the contact record), it's sent through Eagle servers by default. However, this feature allows you to send the email through your own mail server instead.
The benefits of sending emails through your own mail server
Here are some reasons why you might want to use this feature:
Sent emails will appear in your email outbox or sent items, just as if you had sent them directly from your regular email client (e.g., Outlook)
In case an email is undeliverable (e.g., due to a misspelled email address), your own mail server will send you a notification email to your inbox
Since the email is sent directly from your own mail server, there is a lower chance of it being filtered by the recipient's mail server
Note: Emails sent through your connected account won't have email tracking for status, opens, and clicks.
The kinds of emails you are able to send through your mail server
Emails that you personally send through Eagle or the Eagle mobile app
Emails that are sent on your behalf via an Eagle automation
Please be aware that there is a daily limit of 700 emails that can be sent through your mail server. Once this limit is reached, any further emails you send from within Eagle will be sent from the Eagle servers instead.
Note: Bulk email campaigns will always send through Eagle bulk email servers.
