8. The Email setup window will appear, select the option Configure later by user. Every time the User connects to the data source he will be prompted with the Validation email window, the user can then click on Send email validation code and an email containing the validation code will be sent. If after a few minutes you still haven't received the validation code please verify the SMTP settings as if one of the SMTP settings isn't correctly set up the email will never be sent and there will not be any error message. When receiving the validation code, enter it in the appropriate field and click on Save. Your user is now set up and ready to access the Devolutions Password Server data source.
