Brevo is an SMTP service that seamlessly connects with AEvent, enabling you to send emails to attendees upon registration.

Furthermore, it lets you schedule reminder emails leading up to the event and set up prompts for post-event follow-ups.

Once configured, it provides a fully automated email delivery process.

You will want to click on the Disable Toggle, and it will show Enabled and an Edit Option will appear to the left of the toggle.

Once you click on Edit, it will open up an email editor so you can create your email that will go to the people who just registered for this event.
