Test Settings: Click this button to ensure that the above settings are correct. The "Apply" button remains unavailable until the above credentials have been verified.
Clear Settings: This will clear any previous email settings you have entered.
Try re-sending failed mails: Select this option if you would like MARS to keep trying to send failed emails. This is useful if you know you have an unreliable email server.

Please note you will need to verify the settings before they can be saved.
Add More: You can set up more than one SMTP server. You can use some as backup servers, or you can have different schedules which email reports using different servers. For more information click here.
Embedding Image Links
By default MARS will embed images into the body of an HTML email if the link is placed. If this box is unchecked, then only the link to image will appear in the HTML email rather than the image itself.
Text character Encoding
Encoding Type: Encoding is used by Operating systems to determine how to
display emails on the recipient's PC. US-ASCII is standard for most languages.
However, if you are using Japanese characters, then you should select ISO-2022-JP.
