After you create an organization and configure settings and policies, you can specify an email server for outbound emails. The email server is used to send account invitation emails, reset password emails, alerts, and share emails. In addition to Gmail, Yahoo, and other related services, you can also integrate with Microsoft Exchange.
For more information on email servers, please reference the How to Specify an Email Server Knowledgebase article.
