 To ensure reliable deliver of email from your website, there are some best practices to observe. To ensure reliable deliver of email from your website, there are some best practices to observe.
  
-Make sure the sender ​email you have configured ​matches the domain ​that your site is on (i.e. @yourdomain.com), and that your host is aware of the email address. The latter is done by creating ​an email account in your host's control panel matching the sender'​s ​address. You do not need to actually ​use the host to manage ​that email address ​(which would requite ​updates to your DNS), but rather that your host is aware of it being a valid email address ​and trusts ​Backlight'​s attempts to send out email using that address.+In Backlight'​s Settings: 
 + 
 +  * In most cases, your **Mail Send Type** should be set as "​mail"​ in Backlight'​s settings. 
 + 
 +  * Also in Backlight'​s settings, your **Site Email** and **Vendor Email** should be an email address that matches the domain ​of your sitei.e. @yourdomain.com
 + 
 +  * Your host should be aware of the above email address; create ​an email account in your host's control panel matching the sender'​s ​access. You do not need to use the host to manage ​the email ((...which would require ​updates to your DNS.)), but this makes the host aware of it being a valid address, so that it will trust Backlight'​s attempts to send mail using the address.
