Configure SMTP for outbound emails

In order to configure outbound email, follow the steps below:

  • Browse to the Settings -> General settings -> Configure outgoing email server -> Create menu.

  • Fill the required information. The settings below configure Odoo to send emails through a Gmail account. Replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your Gmail account username and password respectively.

    #### Connection Information
    SMTP Server:
    SMTP Port: 587
    #### Security and Authentication
    Connection Security: TLS
    Password: PASSWORD
  • Save the changes.

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

NOTE: If you are using Gmail as the outbound email server and have experienced issues trying to send emails correctly, check the Gmail SMTP troubleshooting page to learn the causes of these issues and how to solve them.
