Email Sending from own SMTP Server

You can configure your Xena fiscal to send emails from your own SMTP server to ensure that the sender's email address is your own.


If you want emails sent from Xena to have your own email address as the sender, you need to set up your own SMTP settings. Here's a guide on how to configure this.


If you choose not to set up your own SMTP server, all emails you send through Xena will be sent from the email address Your company name will still be the sender's name, and recipients will still be able to reply to emails from you. The difference lies in the email address displayed as the sender.

Here's an example of an email sent from Xena without configuring your own SMTP server. Note that your company name is displayed as the sender's name (in the example: EG Xena Demo Account A/S), but it is sent from

Configuring SMTP Settings

  • Open the Settings menu > Company > Company Profile.
  • In the Company box, click on the edit icon to access the link for entering SMTP settings.

Boksen med virksomhedsoplysninger i Xena. En pil peger på linket til at åbne SMTP-indstillinger.


In the dialog box, first select 'Enabled'. Now you can enter the settings:

  • Server name (outgoing email server), port, and SSL/TLS (encryption) can be obtained from your email provider or IT administrator.
  • Username and password are the administrator login credentials for the mentioned email server.
  • The 'From email address' field is the email address to be used as the sender for emails from Xena.
  • The administrator email address is used to receive test emails and will also be used if sending an email fails.

Note: 'From email address' and 'Administrator email' can be the same.

Test Your Settings

Once all the fields are filled in, click the 'Test settings' button. If all the information is valid, a test email will be sent to the administrator email address with the following message:

Billede af den test-mail Xena sender. Der står: "Dette er en test e-mail sendt via Xena. Mailindstillingerne fungerer som forventet."


In case of error

If the entered data contains errors, an error message will be displayed on the screen after approximately 30 seconds. Check and correct the entered data, then press 'Test Settings' again.

If the settings still fail the test, you can save the settings as they are, and then send an email to yourself from Xena. It can be any email, for example, you can send a partner balance sheet to yourself.

Now an email will be sent to the email address entered as the Administrator email. This email will indicate the error code detected when attempting to send the email. Contact your email provider and provide them with the error code. They will be able to assist you further with troubleshooting.

REMEMBER to disable the SMTP settings until the issue is resolved.


Disable SMTP Settings

If you want to revert to the default method of sending emails in Xena, simply disable the settings in the dialog box and click 'Save settings'.
