Once you hit the save button all your SMTP credentials will be saved to the brand panel of Sendy and now you are ready to send mails through Pepipost as a relay integration but you won’t be able to track the user mails through Sendy, unless you integrate webhook. In order to check the logs, there are two ways you can check by logging in to pepipost application or using pepipost webhook that is integrated with Sendy which can be done through the below step.
Tracking emails will allow you to understand the impact of your email campaign by taking into account user events that are receiving emails, which in return lets you determine strategies to further improve your campaign’s success.
For instance, you can track the number of users that have clicked a link, Opened the email, Not opened the email, Bounced emails and so on in Sendy’s reports panel.
You can find the tracking information in the report section.
For viewing reports click on [your-brand-name] -> [See reports]
