There are multiple apps and platforms for scheduling and sending Bulk Mails. You can add your mail accounts to these apps and use the SMTP protocol for connecting the apps to the cPanel mail services.
Here is the example of details of the SMTP settings.

1. **Secure SSL/TLS Settings (Recommended)**
Username: example@domain.com
Password: Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server: host1.monovm.com (mail server address)
Outgoing Server: host1.monovm.com (mail server address)
IMAP Port: 993
POP3 Port: 995
SMTP Port: 587

2. **Non-SSL Settings (NOT Recommended)**
Username: example@domain.com
Password: Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server: mail.domain.com (mail server address)
Outgoing Server: mail.domain.com (mail server address)
IMAP Port: 143
POP3 Port: 110
SMTP Port: 465

Also, you can use the cPanel cron job for sending scheduled mails.

Please note, any types of Bulk Mailing services are not provided by MonoVM and, and clients can use their services for daily mailing.
