Configure SMTP for outbound emails
Follow these steps:
- Navigate to the OSClass admin interface.
- Select the “Settings -> Mail Server” menu item.
Configure SMTP as shown below, assuming a Gmail account:
- Server type: Gmail Server
- Hostname: smtp.gmail.com
- Server port: 465
- Username: USERNAME@gmail.com
- Password: PASSWORD
- Encryption: ssl

Replace the above values with settings specific to your SMTP server. If using Gmail, replace the USERNAME and PASSWORD placeholders with correct values for your Gmail account.
To configure the application to use the SMTP service provided by Amazon Simple Email Service (SES), refer to the guide on using Amazon SES.
To configure the application to use other third-party SMTP services for outgoing email, such as SendGrid or Mandrill, refer to the FAQ.
