Automated Email
The system used to send various kinds of automated emails to system users and candidates. To send such automated emails, earlier it was mandatory to configure the system email.

Here are the two categories of automated emails.

Interview create, update, cancelled emails
If individual email is configured, the individual email address will be used for sending the emails. If individual email is not configured, mass email service will be used for sending the emails.

Other automated emails like application received, interview reminders etc. It will always be done through the mass email service.
