    Hello Manny

    Welcome to wpmu community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    You can use either php email or smtp email, though smtp email is recommended.

    For setting up smtp email you need to have some info from your host/hosting company.

    From email: You will give an email address that your subscribers will see the email is coming from

    SMTP Outgoing Server: You will get it from your hosting company (e.g.

    SMTP Username: If you get any username for your smtp settings

    SMTP Password: If you get any password for your smtp settings

    SMTP port: Default port is 25, but your server can use different port

    Secure SMTP: If your mail server has SSL enabled.

    You will get all of these info from your hosting company. Also, if you have any email account in your hosting, in there you can take a look too. There could be setting for IMAP, POP and SMTP for configure email client.

    Hope it helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more question.
