Configure SMTP for outbound emails

To configure outbound email, follow these steps:

  • Go to the /opt/bitnami/tinytinyrss/ Tiny Tiny RSS installation folder.

  • Ensure that the ttrss-mailer-smtp plugin is installed in the plugins.local subfolder. If not, follow the installation instructions in the plugin’s official documentation.

  • Edit the config.php file adding the SMTP configuration. For example, if using a Gmail account, replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your Gmail account username and password respectively:

      putenv('TTRSS_SMTP_FROM_NAME=Tiny Tiny RSS');

To configure the application to use the SMTP service provided by Amazon Simple Email Service (SES), refer to the guide on using Amazon SES.

NOTE: Amazon EC2 blocks SMTP port 25 by default on all Amazon EC2 instances, and you must manually request removal of this restriction to use this port.

To configure the application to use other third-party SMTP services for outgoing email, such as SendGrid, refer to the FAQ.
