You can configure your own Gmail account or any third party SMTP service in Chargebee. You'll need the following information to configure SMTP in Chargebee.
- SMTP host name
- SMTP port number
- SMTP username
- SMTP password
- Encryption Type (SSL or TLS)
To configure, just go to Settings >> Customer-facing essentials >> Email notifications >> Change settings (under SMTP settings) >> Configure SMTP, fill in the necessary details and click Save. An example of a Gmail SMTP is below.

Note: Gmail has a daily limit for sending emails. You can learn more about it here.
