From Display Name
This is the name that is displayed in the subject line of the email.
From Email Address
All transactional emails are sent to the customer from this email address. If this field is blank, then the emails will be sent using the Store admin's email address (Stores > General Settings > Store Contact Information). If both the Email Address fields are blank, then no transactional emails will be sent to the customers. Hence any one of the fields should always have the Email Address.
BCC Email Address
This functionality works as normal BCC email functionality. Any emails sent to the customers are also sent to this email address.

Turn Off Emails

SMTP Port Information
25 is typically used as a clear text SMTP port. Usually, when there is SMTP running on port 25, there is no SSL and no TLS, therefore the email client has to be set accordingly.
- Port 465
465 is usually used for SMTP over SSL, therefore there needs to have settings that reflect this, however, it does not use TLS.
- Port 587
587 is usually used for SMTP when using TLS. TLS is not the same as SSL. Typically anything, where SSL needs to be on or off, should be set to off. This includes any setting that goes along the lines of “SSLOnConnect”. It doesn’t mean TLS is less secure, it’s just a different way of creating the connection. Instead of SSL being used straight away, the secure connection is “negotiated” after connection.
