1. Go to your Funio Hub and then to your cPanel. In the "Email' section, choose "Email Accounts" and fill the form to create your account with your domain name. You can also follow this tutorial to create an email account.

2.Once your account is created, please write down your SMTP Host and your SMTP Port.

Here, you can use your Funio account.

SMTP host : 
SMTP port: 465 

(You’ll find your server number in the technical information of your plan in your Funio Hub), or with this tutorial.
