Configure SMTP for outbound emails

You can configure the email settings by changing the following properties. Here is an example using a Gmail account. Replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your Gmail account username and password respectively.

phpmailer.smtp-host (eg.
phpmailer.smtp-port (eg.  465)
phpmailer.smtp-protocol (eg.  ssl)
phpmailer.smtp-user (eg.
phpmailer.smtp-password (eg. PASSWORD)

You can change the value of these properties through the Phabricator application (“Config -> PHPMailer” menu) or by running the command:

$ /opt/bitnami/apps/phabricator/htdocs/bin/config set property value

where property has to be one of the above and value the corresponding value. The above example shows how configure Phabricator with an Gmail account.

For advanced configuration, refer to the official email configuration article.

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