Solid Security Notifications

Notifications

Here, you can manage and configure email notifications sent by Solid Security related to various settings modules.

The first thing you see on the Notifications page is an option to change the From Email address and the Default Recipient list.

FROM EMAIL Solid Security will send notifications from this email address. Leave blank to use the WordPress default.
Default Recipients Set the default recipients for any admin-facing notifications.

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