      Hi Rodney

      Thank you for your question, I’m happy to help.

      I don’t have those on-hand. I’ve reached out to the fredd.co.za support and am awaiting feedback. Once I have that I’ll update our SMTP settings and send you the link.

        Update: Rodney I’ve tried calling FREDD numerous times and sent three emails to FREDD support with no response. If you can provide alternate contact details I’m happy to pursue those to get updated details for FREDD to add here?

Have a comment or question?
