iThemes Security Notification Center

Notification Center

 

Manage and configure email notifications sent by iThemes Security related to various settings modules. If errors are encountered while sending notification emails, they will be reported here.

We suggest leaving the From email field blank unless using some like security@yousite.com versus your admin user email to avoid failures. You can also use thrid party services such as Sendgrid, Postmark, Mandrill and etc to better handle email, and avoid possible failures.
